Tōten Miyazaki

Tōten Miyazaki

Tōten Miyazaki (宮崎 滔天 Miyazaki Tōten) or Torazō Miyazaki (1871–1922) was a Japanese philosopher who aided and supported Sun Yat-sen during the Xinhai Revolution. While Sun was in Japan, he assisted Sun in his travels as he was wanted by authorities.[1]

In one case, he registered under the name Nakayama (中山) at the "Crane Hotel" (對鶴館). This name would later be converted to the more popular Chinese name Sun Zhong-shan (孫中山).[1] While Miyazaki Toten had the same ideals as Sun, they could not communicate by speaking, due to their different languages. They communicated by writing Kanji back and forth on paper.[2]

On 7 September 1900, Sun's first overseas visit to Singapore was to rescue Miyazaki Toten who was arrested there. This act resulted in his own arrest and a ban from visiting the island for five years.

The Nanjing Historical Remains Museum of Chinese Modern History has bronze statues of Sun and Miyazaki placed alongside each other.
