Chapter Summary

Born in 1875, just seven years after the Meiji Restoration, Hasegawa Nyozekan's life spanned most of Japan's modern century. Nyozekan's central characteristic as an intellectual and journalist was his liberalism, and this too undoubtedly began to take form under the influence of his earliest education. In the years immediately following his graduation from Tokyo Hogakuin, Nyozekan found himself once again forced to recuperate from a bout of ill-health. Due to illness, Kuga resigned as editor of Nihon in 1906, and in 1907, Nihon merged with Miyake Setsurei's magazine Nihonjin to form Nihon oyobi Nihonjin. The announcement of the Siberian Expedition helped touch off the Rice Riots. In March 1946, Nyozekan served as an Imperial appointee to the House of Peers in the last session of the Imperial Diet. Upon returning to Japan, Nyozekan entered more deeply into his retirement, spending most of 1957 convalescing from an illness.
