Like A Dragon: Ishin has many different substory quests that players can find and try to complete. One of which is The Captain and The Curious substory.
The Captain and The Curious substory involves a foreigner who enjoys hanging around with friends drinking and being polite. However, despite his popularity not everyone is amused by his presence.
SUBSTORY QUEST: The Captain and The Curious
CHAPTER: Chapter 6 – The Ikedaya Incident
QUEST GIVER: Carefree Foreigner (Ernest Satow)
REWARDS: Writings of an Amateur Historian, 300 Virtue
LOCATION: Fushimi Ichibangai (Fushimi)
Head to the Fushimi Ichibangai street and we will come across a bunch of men sitting at a table drinking. Ryoma will mention that there is a lot of noise coming from the izakaya.
Soon enough one of the drinkers will leave in order to keep his wife happy. This then forces the foreigner to search for other people to drink with. He, of course, ends up picking Ryoma, who is just casually staring at him. Both the Carefree Foreigner and Ryoma begin drinking together.
The carefree foreigner will then introduce himself as Ernest Satow and he will continue to explain that he came to Japan in search of work.
Eventually Satow will want Ryoma to go walking with him. This will then lead us to a man named Kaeakami Gensai. Who seems to have some kind of beef with Satow. Defeat the Loyalist Shishi.
