Utsumi Jiro (内海次郎)
Jiro UTSUMI (1836 - ?) was a member of Shinsengumi (a group who guarded Kyoto during the end of Tokugawa Shogunate) from Kawagoe City, Musashi Province. He later became a Goryo-eji (guard of Imperial mausoleums). His name is usually spelled 次郎, but it is also spelled 二郎.
He fought in the Boshin War on the New government army side. In 1869, he built a gravestone of Goryo-eji in Kaiko-ji Temple. His whereabouts after that is unknown.
