He remarried in Japan and had two children (5/7)

List item

While Adams had originally married in England and began a family with his wife there, in his later years he would remarry in Japan to a young Japanese woman named Oyuki, with whom he had two children: Susanna and Joseph. Records state that Oyuki was not of a high social standing nor nobility, despite the fact that her father was an important official, and as such seem to imply that the marriage was romantically motivated.
