Engraving on Stone

By Carlkuntze
Shimoda, Japan.

A reproduction of a page in the diary of First American Consul to Japan.
Some of Townsend Harris' entries were unflattering, but they did not
offend his hosts, who were aware of the obstacles they strewn in his way.
Unlike Commodore Matthew G. Perry's memorial statue in Yokohama, which
was razed after General Jimmy Doolittle's first raid over Tokyo, The Townsend Harris Memorial (Gyokusen Temple) is well preserved. Pilgrimages by Japanese are frequent. It is to him they credit Japan's entry into the modern world.
