Train bombings in Madrid occurred two days before the opening, on March 11. Probably the Japanese government tried to boast of its superb railway system and to undermine the opening of the high-speed railway line around Kagoshima.
The Meiji Restoration was totally a fake revolution. The surrender of the samurai government was a put-up job in order only to deceive the subject people. There was more to it than that. Saigo Takamori was a spy who was secretly employed by the Imperial clan and the Tokyo samurai government. Saigo was said to have been born and brought up in Kagoshima. But Saigo totally destroyed Buddhist temples and related treasuries in Kagoshima. Particularly a lot of metal was secretly sent to Tokyo and was used for building new battleships for the Meiji government.
The origin of the name of Okinawa prefecture is inexplicable like the origin of the name of Kagoshima prefecture. I believe that the Tokyo government malevolently gave the island the name of "Okinawa". Okinawa is pronounced like "Ookina Wa". And "Okina Wa" means exactly "Yamato" or the "Japanese Imperial Dynasty".
To ridicule others behind their back manipulating puns and double meanings is one of the outstanding evil propensity of the Japanese imperial clan.
