of complete lithograph
Commodore Perry first meet with high government officials in Yoku-hama (Yokohama). These officials were the commissioners who had been designated to negotiate with him. Here again, as with the Regent in Okinawa, Perry was operating under a misunderstanding as to actually who he was conducting negotiations with. He believed the commissioners were representatives of the Emperor but they were actually representatives of the Shogun Tokugawa Iesada, the de facto ruler of Japan.
The Narrative describes how, in an open meeting with may observers, one party would say something and the Interpreter would go to the other party and privately convey the message. The interchange was not carried out in the more traditional open and public translation process we normally envision.
