This chapter focuses on how the Senzaimaru reached Nagasaki. It describes the inspection and eventual loading of cargo onto the Senzaimaru, as well as the cargo that the Japanese ultimately brought to China. Although the purpose of the voyage was to seek a treaty to trade, the Japanese also wanted to make observations of the Western powers and how international trade was conducted. The chapter also looks at the arrival of the Senzaimaru in Shanghai, together with the manifold first impressions recorded by the Japanese as they approached the port over water.

Keywords:   cargo, Senzaimaru, Shanghai, diplomatic relations, Japan, China, Nagasaki, international trade
