The Teradaya Museum is located in the former Teradaya Inn where pro-imperial ronin plotted a revolt to overthrow the Tokugawa shogunate. It became the scene of the bloody clash on 21-May 1862 between the pro-imperial rebels and the daimyo’s samurai who supported the shogun. Famed rebel samurai Sakamoto Ryōma was attacked by the Shogun police during his stay here in 1866 and escaped from back. The museum has reconstructed the room where he slept, with sword cuts and bullet hole marked out showing where the fight took place. Nearby is a monument to the 9 samurai who were killed in the incident of 1862.
