The 7th Division (第七師団, Daishichishidan) of the Imperial Japanese Army, formerly led by the late Lieutenant General Hanazawa Koijirou, is one of the opposing forces of the Golden Kamuy series. Led by the First Lieutenant Tokushirou Tsurumi, their unit is planning to rebel against the Central Government, take over the main 7th Division base in Asahikawa and create a military government in Hokkaido.

Overview[]

In Hokkaido the 7th Division is commonly known as the Hokuchin Unit (北鎮部隊, Hokuchin Butai) and the North's last defense. They're renowned to be the strongest unit of the army. Most of the 7th Division soldiers in the series hail from the 27th Infantry Regiment.

During the Russo-Japanese War, 7th Division was sent into the heat of the most violent battles such as Siege of Port Arthur and Battle of Mukden. Despite suffering heavy losses, their contributions were crucial to the Japanese victory.
