For centuries, Japan had isolated itself from the outside planet by refusing to trade with other countries as well as refusing to support shipwrecked sailors, foreign or Japanese. The country's people nevertheless lived under a feudal system like that of Europe in the Middle Ages. But every little thing began to change when American Commodore Perry and his troops sailed towards the Land from the Rising Sun, bringing with them new science and technology, in addition to a new way of life.
