Empire of Japan Treaty: Kanagawa, March 31, 1854

http://web.jjay.cuny.edu/~jobrien/reference/ob25.html

Rating: 2, High!

Description: This agreement, forced on the Tokugawa shogunate by Commodore Perry's menacing "black ships," ended over two centuries of virtual exclusion (the exception being the Dutch) of foreign traders from the coast of Japan. The intrusion of the U.S. in the first place (see President Fillmore's letter http://web.jjay.cuny.edu/~jobrien/reference/ob54.html) derived from the ill-treatment accorded American whaling crews when shipwrecked off the coast or landing for provisions or repairs. The treaty fully satisfied the U.S. government's concerns in this regard but left to the future the equally important matter of opening the country to foreign trade; concluded in 1858 with the signing of the Harris Treaty http://web.jjay.cuny.edu/~jobrien/reference/ob58.html Standard 10.3.2
