Summary: Japan's First Embassy to America
Comment: In 1860, 77 Japanese, all anti-foreign and opposed to opening their country to thw world were sent to Washington to spend 10 months with the people they habitually referred to as "the hairy ones" or "the barbarians", the people of the United States. They received a warm welcome. To the Americans, the two-sworded, top-knotted Japanese might easily have been creatures from another planet. This is the story of the wining and dinning of those Japanese visitors as they were paraded through San Francisco, Washington, Baltimore, Philadelpia, and New York. Fantastic happenings, but most people don't even know of them. This book is wonderfully illustrated, however I don't know by whom.
