Ichiro Ogami (大神 一郎, Ōgami Ichirō) is the captain of the Teikoku Kagekidan's Hanagumi. He is the playable character and main male protagonist of Sakura Taisen through Sakura Taisen 4.

Appearance and PersonalityEdit


A graduate of the Imperial Naval Academy, Ogami was chosen to head the Hanagumi when he proved himself capable during a test of a Koubu prototype at sea. Kayama was with him during that time, but eventually Ogami was sent to work with the Hanagumi, as Kayama worked with the Tsukigumi.

In the gamesEdit

Sakura TaisenEdit


In the first Sakura Wars, Ogami was just newly transferred to the highly secret Imperial Assault Force. What happens in the game is based on the player's decisions.

Sakura Taisen 2Edit

Ogami is given the command of the Imperial Flower Combat Troupe after being away for a year to complete duties as a Naval Officer in the Imperial Japanese Navy. What occurs in the story is based on the player's decision.

Sakura Taisen 3Edit

Ohgami is transferred to Paris to develop the newly created Paris Assault Force. Again, much of the story revolves around the player's decision.

Sakura Taisen 4Edit

The Imperial Flower Combat Troupe faces a new threat in Tokyo, and Ogami is given the responsibility of commanding the troupe along with the Paris Assault Force. Ohgami finally chooses a girl, and they (presumably) live happily ever after.

Sakura Wars V: So Long, My LoveEdit

Ogami only appears in a cameo in the first scene of the game. The game's protagonist is Shinjiro Taiga, Ogami's nephew, who Ogami sends to New York, to command the newly-formed New York Star Division.
