Visited Kyoto (1861) and went her villa to Kuniomi Hirano and other samumi working for the restoration of the Imperial regime and otherwise helped Loyalists. Shinsaku Takasugi, noted Loyalist of the Choshii Clan, was sheltered by her when he was being sought by Shogunate police. She was exiled to Himejima Island off Nagasaki by the Shogunate for her pro-Imperialist activities (1865) but was rescued by Takasugi and others and was brought to Mitajiri (Yamaguchi Prefecture). Became a disciple of Kotomichi Okuma, noted waka poet.
After the death of her second husband, she became a Buddhist nun and called herself Boto-ni.
