Instead of departing as the Japanese "hosts" desired, Commodore Perry moved the squadron approximately 10 miles up the the bay to an new anchorage that they designated the "American Anchorage" in their own honor. Needless to say, this unexpected turn of events caused serious concern with the host. They expected the Americans to leave, not move further inland. Again, Commodore Perry dispatched the unwelcome surveying parties. He did the same the next day, July 15. On the 16th the squadron began the outbound journey.
This lithograph shows a Japanese vessel "escorting" the squadron as it passes the village of Togirasaki on the way out of Yedo Bay.
