Wax Figure of Okichi.

By Carlkuntze
Shimoda, Japan.

At The Townsend Harris Memorial is a wax reproduction of Okichi, the
"present" local town fathers gave him as an indication of acceptance.
Okichi might have been the model for Puccini's Cho Cho San in his opera
"Madame Butterfly." She committed suicide after Townsend Harris left
Japan. She was seventeen years old.
