An inn that a famous historical hero loved in Fushimi
Teradaya is an inn operated since Edo period and located in Fushimi area which is historically a port region famous for sake brewery. The inn became a well-known place in connection with Ryoma Sakamoto who was one of the prominent figures in Japan's modernization and contributed to overthrowing the Tokugawa Shogunate in 19th century. As he really loved the inn, which even became the place where he was assassinated by his political foe, it has become a mecca for Japanese history fans. Some cuts on the wall marked during his assassination still exists. There are some souvenir shops selling goods of Sakamoto around the area. Please stroll and consider getting some of memorial goods.

A Statue Of Ryoma Sakamoto Ryoma
This area of the inn was built in 1978 for a garden. He often put his left hand into a kimono when he posed for pictures and paintings. That is because his hand was injured in an attack there, and the statue was created in reflection of his pictures.

Pray For A Good Relationship
When Sakamoto and his wife, O-ryo met for the first time at Teradaya, it is told that a small shrine in the garden brought fortune for their relationship. Try to pray here, and you might meet a best partner in the near future!

A Fortune Paper With A Vase
This fortune-telling would inform you on how difficult for your wishes to become true! At first, please get a fortune paper for ¥100 at the entrance. And then, put it on the water in a vase with any coins. If the paper goes down into the water fast, your wish might be realized shortly. If not, you should pray harder!

This museum used to be an inn, and it is most famous for having Sakamoto Ryoma, a prominent figure in the movement opposing the shogunate, stay at it. Naturally this spot is popular among the people who like Japanese history, especially the Bakumatsu period. There is also a shopping arcade named after Ryoma close by, so those who are in Fushimi for the sake museums should also take a look at these historic places.
