Slightly off-topic, but only slightly.

Today in 1835 Fukuzawa Yukichi (福澤 諭吉) was born. He is one of the most influential people of the Meiji period and is regarded as one of the founding fathers of modern Japan.

Since I hold him in high regard and the Meiji period coincides with the lifetime of Jules Verne, Queen Victoria and Kaiser Friedrich III, it is only fitting to include this Japanese notable on my blog.
