Excerpt from Prominent Americans: Interested in Japan and Prominent Japanese in America

The first felling of friendship between the United States and Japan began with the visit to Japan of Commodore Perry, of the American navy. Ever since that memorable voyage Japan has felt that the awakening of the Far East, and the great benefit she herself has received from her acceptance of Western civilization, were due to the stimulus and inspiration given by the United States. In the half century that has followed, the friendship of the two nations has been strengthened by means of a rapidly developing commerce. No American should be ignorant of the fact that among the people of Japan there is a sincere and deep-rooted friendship for the people of the United States.

"Japan and America" was founded in this city in July, 1901, and the "Japanese-American Commercial Weekly" in December, 1900, for the purpose of helping to maintain and promote friendly and commercial relations between America and Japan. They are endeavoring to draw the peoples of the two countries closer together in all their relations of life - in trade, in art, in literature - and in sympathy with each other in the broad purpose, shared by both in common, of world-civilization. Both nations, it should be remembered, are engaged upon the solution of the same grave and important problem - the civilization and uplifting of inferior races. That the efforts of this periodical have been widely appreciated is shown by the fact that "Japan and America" and the "Japanese-American Commercial Weekly" now have a large and in creasing circulation in the United States and in Japan.

We here present portraits and biographical sketches of prominent Americans who are interested in Japan, and of Japanese who are interested in America. The Americans who are most interested in Japan are well known to the older people in Japan, but not to the younger generation. It is our purpose to make known to this class such of the successful Americans as they ought to know. In like manner, the sketches tell Americans of some of the successful men of Japan.
