LARGE PAPERBACK. Sir Ernest Satow's well-known best-seller "A Diplomat in Japan" (first published in 1921) which is still widely available is based mainly on his diaries ("journals") for 1862-69. The unabridged diaries in this volume, carefully transcribed from original documents held at the U.K. National Archives and published for the first time on lulu.com, tell the story of Ernest Satow's subsequent years in Japan (and two home leaves in Europe) up until the start of 1883. This fully annotated book includes an introduction by former U.K. Ambassador to Japan Sir Hugh Cortazzi, six black & white illustrations, a map, a select bibliogaphy, a chronology and an index. This book is part of a series in which some of the extensive and hitherto unpublished Satow Papers are being made available in print and as a download to scholars and the general reading public on lulu.com by Ian Ruxton. (It is also available from retail bookstores online, and can be ordered by bricks-and-mortar bookstores.) LCCN: 2009909316

A fascinating inside account of the epic clash between the Japanese in the West in its earliest days.

These are the edited (i.e. transcribed, annotated and indexed) diaries of Sir Ernest Satow (1843-1929) for the six years from the time when he left Japan early in 1883, through his time as Agent and Consul-General and subsequent promotion to Minister Resident at Bangkok, until his return to London and his request in December 1887 for another posting on health grounds. The period includes his visits to Japan (officially for rest and recuperation) in 1884 and 1886, and to Paris, Rome and Lisbon for research into the Jesuits in Japan conducted early in 1888, and the confirmation of his appointment to Montevideo in October of that year. Throughout the period his ultimate goal was promotion to Minister in Japan, which he achieved in 1895. The original diaries are in the National Archives (UK).

"[...]abandoned. Where the money came from that was thus transferred to the pockets of officials can be best explained by those who are versed in economical questions. For my own part, I cannot look back on that period without shame, and my only excuse, which is perhaps of little worth in the court of history, is that I was at the bottom of the ladder, and received the proportion paid to me by those who were in charge of the business. A few words may be devoted to describing the Yokohama society of those days. There were few ladies in the settlement. Japan was a long way from Europe, with no regular steam communication, and the lives of foreigners were supposed to be not very safe at the hands of the arm-bearing classes. The two[...]".

The diaries of Sir Ernest Satow, British Minister in Tokyo 1895-1900, transcribed, annotated and indexed by Ian Ruxton with an introduction by Dr. Nigel Brailey. At the time there was no Ambassador and Satow was the chief British representative in Japan, overseeing the Tokyo legation with consulates at Yokohama, Nagasaki, Kobe and Hakodate. His work in easing the ending of extraterritoriality and facilitating the transfer of jurisdiction in the foreign settlements (treaty ports) to Japan in July 1899 was an essential precondition for the Anglo-Japanese Alliance of 1902.
