Tomb of the Sakamoto family

After the death of Ryoma Sakamoto, his elder sister Chizu’s eldest son, Taro Takamatsu, became an adopted son and took over as the head of the Sakamoto family, changing his name to Nao Sakamoto. The family line of Ryoma Sakamoto moved to Hokkaido in 1899, when Nao and his wife Tome moved to Urausu, counting on his brother Naohiro.
