This chapter examines depictions of the Senzaimaru in fiction and films. The story of the Senzaimaru is framed as a chapter in the evolution of Takasugi Shinsaku's intellectual and emotional development; Takasugi is the most famous member of the Japanese delegation who went to Shanghai. The chapter first considers two novels by Shiba Ryōtarō, Yo ni sumu hibi (Days of my life in the world) and Kashin (God of the blooming flower), the latter of which was broadcast by the Japanese education television station NHK in 1977. It then reviews the movie Noroshi wa Shanhai ni agaru (Signal fires over Shanghai).
