On Thursday, Caleb and I went to learn some stuff about the history of Japan. Adam Stanley talked about this man who had very little money that was shipwrecked while trying to make money for his family. This man was Manjiro. He ended up being rescued and brought to America where he was able to receive a formal education. He brought his knowledge back to japan and ended up helping Japan to initially get along with the US. He had many adventures in his life and if you would like to learn more about this just stop by my room.
