Samurai Archives Japanese History Podcast


 

Aug 1, 2013

Over the next two episodes of the S-A Podcast, we look at the Russian incursions into the Kuril island chain and Japanese territories during the Edo period.  Led by a variety of characters, from cartographers and political envoys to criminals and rogue adventurers, these incursions struck fear into the citizens of Japan's capital of Edo, and slowly developed and shaped the harsh treatment of shipwrecked foreign sailors by the Shogunate.
