From the middle of the seventeenth to the beginning of the nineteenth-century, Japan, through the Tokugawa Shōgunate, was successful in rigorously enforcing a policy of seclusion. No Europeans were allowed into Japan except the Dutch who were allowed to land a ship every yEar In July 1853 Commodore Matthew Perry, with a squadron of four ships-of-war entered Uraga Bay, just south of Yokohama. He returned the next year and a treaty was signed to allow the opening of Shimoda (south of Numazu and Mishima) and Hakodate (on Hokkaido) to ships seeking provisions. This contact represented the 'opening' of Japan (Dai Nippon) to the modern world.
