The lecture will introduce two women whose lives on first sight had not much in common but their place of birth (Edo) and gender. One was the daughter of a physician and the other the daughter of a high-ranking lord. Yet both women shared a similar lot. Tadano Makuzu (1763-1825) and Naito Shigeko (1800–1880) had to leave behind a familiar life for their involuntary travels to unknown destinations. The lecture will describe how these two women dealt with drastic changes in their lives.
