Kaemon Takashima (高島 嘉右衛門) is a fascinating multi-facetted individual of the Meiji Era. He was a business trained in the Yijing school of Arai Hakuga. His societal network was vast and he regularly divined for government officials. His interpretations of the Yijing span from events pertaining to individuals to societal evolution. Several of his predictions are well-known, including the major earthquake of the Ansei period that hit Tokyo in 1855, the Sino-Japanese War, the Russo-Japanese War and his own death.
