(p.120) 7 Transitions
The Chaos and Cosmos of Kurosawa Tokiko

Laura Nenzi

University of Hawai'i Press

This two-part chapter deals with transitions large and small, public and private. With her banishment in 1859 and the deaths of Tokugawa Nariaki and Ii Naosuke in 1860, Tokiko’s foray into engaged activism came to a close. Four years later Tokiko chronicled the Mito civil war. With the balance between chaos and cosmos compromised by these transitional moments, Tokiko adapted to times that kept on changing, while still using the cosmic forces to restore harmony in the face of discordance.
