This chapter focuses on the Japanese government's planning for the official mission to Shanghai in 1862 via the Senzaimaru. More specifically, it examines the role played by the Tokugawa shogunate in making the mission possible. It considers the efforts of the Nagasaki and Hakodate bugyō or Magistrates, who began investigating such possibilities from the late 1850s. The chapter also looks at the Senzaimaru and its passengers, which included cooks and deckhands in addition to the shogunal officials, and speculates as to why they were selected as part of the mission.

Keywords:   voyage, Shanghai, Senzaimaru, Japan, China, diplomatic relations, Tokugawa shogunate, Nagasaki, Hakodate, Magistrates
