She had a sister that was older than her in her childhood, but they did not see each other very much.
People say she had an operation but most people do not know why.
It was very sad when her father died because they spent a lot of time together.
She later on went on a travel with her horse and her horse broke 2 ribs.
That is when her horse lost 2 ribs.
She hired a translator so she did not have to learn Japanese.
Who had token care of her sister when was sick.
She was rescued at the last minute by a detachment of soldiers. At another place she was stoned and knocked unconscious. She then traveled into the mountains bordering Tibet before returning home in 1897.
