My grandfather gave me this book as a gift when I was a senior in high school ( I had told him that I wasn't a "reader. It smelled of Japanese incense, which I'm sure added to the ambiance when reading it. Knowing that one of my ancestors was on this ship with Commodore Perry sealed the deal. I couldn't put this book down.

Looks at the interaction between the Japanese and Westerners after Commodore Perry opened the nation to foreign trade
  • This is quite an entertaining account of the first foreign diplomats to live in Japan after Perry forced the country open. A bit dated and with a few quirks (like calling Deshima "Decima"), it is a lively read.

  • Completely riveting and the best read I've had in ages; who says the modern world changes faster than before? Get it for the whole family!
