Satsuma, Ming China, and the Invasion of Korea

  • Masuda Wataru


From the extant historical materials, we can at best generally trace the relationship between Satsuma and Ming China. On Hideyoshi’s military expeditions to Korea, and particularly the movements of the Satsuma army at that time, these traces can be found in Shimazu Hisatoshi’s Sei-Kan roku. I first examined the copy of this text held in the Naikaku Bunko (originally held in the Asakusa Bunko). I later learned that it was included in the Shimazu shiryō shū (Collection of Historical Documents on Shimazu)a and printed with annotations based on the manuscripts held in the collection of Shimazu Hisamitsu.
