A gentleman from Japan

the untold story of an incredible journey from Asia to Queen Elizabeth's court
Thomas Lockley
Book - 2024

On November 12, 1588, five young Asian men--led by a twenty-one-year-old called Christopher--traveled up the River Thames to meet Queen Elizabeth I. Christopher's epic sea voyage had spanned from Japan, via the Philippines, New Spain (Mexico), Java and Southern Africa. On the way, he had already become the first recorded Japanese person in North America. Now Christopher was the first ever Japanese visitor to England, and no other would leave such a legacy for centuries to come. The story of Christopher is almost utterly forgotten and has never been fully told before.
