This chapter focuses on business and other concerns of the various groups who were on board the Senzaimaru upon setting foot on Chinese soil. Members of the Japanese delegation were mobbed by curious locals everywhere they went. In general, their first impressions of Shanghai were not very good, mainly because the city was filthy and overcrowded while the people did not observe the rules of etiquette expected by the visitors. This chapter also describes the reaction of the Japanese to how the Chinese and foreigners lived in Shanghai, as well as the “brush conversation” in their interactions with Chinese people.
