Toranosuke Shimada ( 島田虎之助 )
The sword is the mind
When the mind is right, the sword is right.
When the mind is not right, the sword is also not right.
He who wishes to study the sword, must first study his mind.

There is a stele in the rear place in front of JR Nakatsu station,
which indicates the birthplace of Shimada Toranosuke.
