Presents Tokiko’s cosmology and her view of the heavens as the place where the rectification of the world’s chaos would begin. By envisioning a link between her personal body and the body of the realm Tokiko claimed a pivotal role as healer of the country writ large, illuminating a new strategy through which women in nineteenth-century Japan could chart paths of political action. The chapter also compares Tokiko’s spiritualism to that of the new religions of the late Tokugawa.
