Another German Visitor at Prefecture Niigata – about 150 years ago.

Arthur Richard Weber (1841-1920) – originally from Schleswig-Holstein (Germany) – lived as a merchant in Japan between 1863 and 1876. When he returned to Germany he authored a book called ‘Kontorrock und Konsulatsmütze’ about his time in Japan. I highly enjoy reading this book as it also gives an insight of the German language spoken at that time.
