- Other Names: 松元誠一 (Matsumoto Seiichi)
- Japanese: 高見弥一 (Takami Yaichi)
Takami was 31 years old when he left for Europe. Like the other young men on the trip, he took on a false name in order to help avoid trouble with the authorities upon his return; while in Europe, he went by Matsumoto Seiichi. Takami studied naval surveying while in Europe, and returned to Japan in 1866/8. Though originally from Tosa, he settled in Kagoshima, where he became a math teacher at one of the city's middle schools.
