After the defeat of the Tokugawa Shogunate in the Boshin War (1869), a part of the former Shogun's navy led by Admiral Enomoto Takeaki fled to the northern island of Ezo (now known as Hokkaidō), together with several thousand soldiers and a handful of French military advisors and their leader, Jules Brunet.

Pelo menos quatro homens do ocidente se tornaram samurais: os aventureiros William Adams e Jan Joosten van Lodensteijn, o oficial da Marinha Eugene Collache e o comerciante de armas Edward Schenell.  Curiosamente, os dois homens que serviram de inspiração para o protagonista de O Último Samurai (Frederick Townsend Ward e Jules Brunet), um ocidental que se tornou guerreiro, não chegaram a receber essa honra.
