Fresco of Arrival of The Black Ships.

By Carlkuntze
Shimoda, Japan.

A fine painting on a slab at Shirahama Beach commemorates the arrival of
Commodore Matthew G. Perry's Black Ships at Yedo Bay further north. It
graphically portrays the consternation felt by the population at the intrusion,
expressed in the posture of the frightened fishermen.
