    American History in Japan

    by Robachu1 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    When in Shimoda we stopped to see the place where Admiral Perry first landed on Japan in the 1800's and the site of the first US Consulate in Japan.

    The website below will give you a short history of Townsend Harris, first consul to Japan, and also Perry's expedition.

    If you go up to the top of Katsuragi-san (Mt. Katsuragi) by ropeway, you can enjoy a spectacular view from the observatory including Mt. Fuji. Unfortunately, I couldn't see the whole of Mt. Fuji as there were clouds covering the mountaintop. But still, the landscape was amazing and was worth paying 1,220 yen (both ways for the ropeway).
