This chapter examines Tokiko’s connections with peers, mentors, and informants near and far. By tracing the contours of her social circles it identifies the space where her worldview and her subsequent plan for action took roots and blossomed. It also looks at the precise historical moment when circumstances coalesced into an invitation to act: the Year of the Horse Ansei 5 (1858).

Keywords:   networks, Nativism (kokugaku), poetic circles, Mito domain, Ansei Treaties, Ii Naosuke, Tokugawa Nariaki, Ansei Purges
