During the Edo period, higaki kaisen (trading ships) transported materials to Edo (now Tokyo), the center of political power in Japan. There, Fudasashi (brokers) would await the shipment of various specialty goods from Osaka, the mercantile center of Japan.
As traders, you will be responsible for the safe transport of the valuable goods that will let Japan prosper into the powerful nation it is today. Your ships will depart from Osaka and journey through dangerous waters on their way to Edo. â€¦
