This chapter focuses on the preparations made by the Japanese delegation, who went to Shanghai in 1862 aboard the Senzaimaru, on their return to Nagasaki. The Senzaimaru was sent by Japan on an official mission to Shanghai aiming to establish commercial and diplomatic relations with the Chinese. The chapter examines whether the mission was successful in terms of trade and diplomacy, considering that China refused to grant the request from the Japanese for a consulate, an agency in handling their own affairs, and future trade.

Keywords:   trade, Shanghai, Senzaimaru, Nagasaki, diplomacy, China, Japan
