This was the law in Japan inside the early 1800s. So when an American whaling boat rescued him, Manjiro decided to do what no other Japanese person had ever done: He went to America, where he received an education and took element in events that eventually made him a hero inside the Land of the Rising Sun. When fourteen-year-old Manjiro, working on a fishing boat to help support his family, was shipwrecked 3 hundred miles away from his homeland, he was heartbroken to assume that he would never again be in a position to go home.
