Epilogue Summary

By July of 1853, Manjiro is teaching in Japan. This is the same time when the first American ships are allowed to come into the ports of Japan. The shogun in Edo appoints Manjiro a samurai and helps foster the relations between the Americans and the Japanese. By 1854, a peace agreement is in place between America and Japan.

Many Japanese continue to be suspicious of Manjiro throughout the rest of his life. He even hired a body guard for protection against assassins. Manjiro had many accomplishments including designing ocean vessels, writing the first English book in Japan and translating "The New American Practical Navigator" into Japanese.

He joined the Japanese embassy to the U.S. as an interpreter, married three times and had three children. He visited with Captain and Mrs. Whitfield when he could and their families still visit each other today.
