Early18thCenturyJapanesePrint

An early 18th century Japanese print depicting a valley, set around the same time as the setting of the books.

Japan is a large island nation located in East Asia and the only regular location Gulliver visits during his travels.

Weary of his disappointing time in Luggnagg, Gulliver is finally able to secure passage on a boat bound for Japan. His stay in the island country is brief, however, as he finds himself in trouble once again. It seems the custom for Dutchmen in Japan is to trample the crucifix, and none have ever refused to do so. The Japanese emperor excuses Gulliver from this tradition, but later, a Dutchman again tries to force Gulliver into trampling the cross, a sacrilegious act in his eyes. Gulliver flees Japan on a ship called the Amboyna, bound for Amsterdam, and there he boards a ship for England, finally returning home to his wife and family in Redriff.
