Japan: Nagasaki China Town

The town was home for many Chinese sailors and traders who trade goods with the Japanese from the 15th to 19th centuries. The Chinese Traders came to Nagasaki because it was the only "open port" to visit Japan at this time. The Tokugawa government only allow Nagasaki to stay open and closed off Japan to the rest of world from western foreign powers and spread of Christianity. Strict rules were placed on these Chinese to never be outside their town at night and not allow to live outside of the town. Any one found outside of the town at certain times were arrested by the local guard.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nagasaki_Chinatown
