Samurai & Kengou, Shinsengumi “Shinsengumi” – Japanese Kanji for Shinsengumi Posted by japanese-kanjisymbols on 2011/05/262011/06/27 I wrote “Shinsengumi”. They were a special police force of the Late Tokugawa Shogunate. “Shin” means New “Sen” means Compose “Gumi” means Association Hijikata, Kondou, Okita, They are very famous. We like Shinsengumi and Akou-Roushi (Forty-seven Samurai) equally, in Japan. Who is your favorite person in Shinsengumi? I’m waiting for a request.
