This chapter discusses the activities of outsiders, Japanese and Koreans, who plied the drug trade later in the nineteenth century in the port city of Tianjin. It explains that the profitability of this trade, which spread rapidly and produced revenues quickly, would encourage Japanese imperial government organs to take it over in the twentieth century.

Keywords:   Japanese, Koreans, drug trade, nineteenth century, Tianjin, profitability, Japanese imperial government, twentieth century
