Ichiro Ogami (大神 一郎, Ōgami Ichirō) is the playable character and main male protagonist of Sakura Taisen through Sakura Wars 4. He is the captain of the Imperial Combat Revue's Flower Division before being transferred to the Paris Combat Revue, before the two briefly merge in the final battle Sakura Wars 4.


Ichiro has brushed-up spiky black hair and dark-colored eyes.

He wears a white uniform jacket, yellow linings and buttons, white ascot, trousers and white leather shoes.


Ichiro has an (un)fortunate knack for, maybe accidentally, running into some of his female comrades in varying states of undress.

Ichiro is a bonafide ladies' man—able to charm his way into the hearts of each of his female teammates.

Ichiro can be hot-blooded at times.

Ichiro wears his uniform well alongside his various acts of heroism, gallantry, and overall reliability as both a leader and person.


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.
