paper, l 198cm × w 81cm × h 36cm. More details

This model shows the Dutch trading post of Deshima on the eve of the opening up of Japan to the West. The island was very small, only 214 by 64 meters. The Dutch ships were loaded and unloaded at the gate on the short end. The bridge on the long side connected Deshima to the city of Nagasaki. The port was strictly guarded to prevent anyone from entering or leaving Deshima without permission of the Japanese authorities.
