An historical account by a very well esteemed diplomat

This book is the definitive description of Japan at the time of the Meiji restoration. Ernest Satow kept meticulous notes on his experiences in Japan from 1862 to 1882. He arrived as an eager young man, excited by all that was around him and ambitious. Soon after Satow's arrival the Namamugi incident occurred. An Englishman named Richardson was cut down by samurai from Satsuma. his crime was to venture too close to the procession of the Prince of Satsuma who unfortunately was not as enlightened as his predecessor, Nariakira. Shimazu Hisamitsu was on his way to Yedo to pay his respects to the Shogun. This caused an international problem in which the British demanded restitution from the Shogun. This story unfolds as do many other pieces of history during that era. Occasionally Satow shows his prejudice as an Englishman but mostly he is a very good observer and tries to be open-minded. For anyone interested in that era of Japanese history this book is a must-read

Satow describes in detail Britain's diplomatic involvement in the opening of Japan and Meiji Restoration. He was a junior member of the diplomatic corps at the time, but as one of the first English-Japanese interpreters in the British foreign service attended many important meetings. As a history of events as they occurred in this interesting period in Japan the book is unrivalled.

For me this is the best Kindle version of Sir Ernest Satow's great book 'A Diplomat in Japan'. It closely resembles the 1921 first edition which I own, and the page numbers in the hyperlinked table of contents are correct as well, which is more than can be said for recent paperback editions. In fact there are also transcriber's notes at the back, a properly functioning index with hyperlinks, and even the advertisements for other books from the 1921 edition have been included! Highly recommended.
I have edited and published Satow's diaries for the period covered by this book (1861-69) with Robert Morton (Kyoto: Eureka Press, 2013). I have also so far edited Satow's diaries for 1870-1883, 1895-1900, 1900-1906 and 1906-1911 (not on amazon yet).

The mere fact that this book has been through many paperback editions since it first appeared as a hardback published in London by Seeley Service in 1921 is on its own a powerful testament to its enduring fascination. This edition is the latest in a long line, and this reviewer hopes that it will never go out of print. (As a Kindle edition has recently been produced this seems unlikely, unless the Kindle itself heralds the end of printed books!)

What is the secret of its popularity? First, it is an eye-witness account by an acutely sensitive and intelligent insider, which many would argue is one of the best kinds of history. Based mainly on his diaries, it depicts not only the political situation of Japan, but also the social conditions of a society on the threshold of an enormous change: the Meiji restoration.

The eyes are those of a sympathetic Westerner who was able to master the Japanese language in a time when there were hardly any text books available, and who later became one of the foremost japanologists of the 19th century. (Of course this is to say nothing of his subsequent career as a top British diplomat and the original author of the Guide to Diplomatic Practice, now in its 6th edition pubd. 2009.)

This is a classic, and deservedly so. Sir Ernest Satow's record of the late Tokugawa shogunate and its overthrow by the Meiji Restoration from the point of view a young student interpreter who later became interpreter and then Japanese Secretary to the British legation in Edo (now Tokyo) is a must-read for anyone who wishes to understand this turbulent and fascinating period of Japan's history. Based chiefly on his diaries ("journals"), it was begun in Bangkok where Satow was Minister in the late 1880s and completed at last in Satow's retirement in England. It was first published in 1921, in London and New York. A distinguished and perceptive observer at all times, this is probably Sir Ernest's best and best-known work.
