According to Yasukdchi, slavery existed in Japan from antiquity and was codified in the Ritsuryd system. During the Nara and Heian periods, slaves never exceeded 5 percent of the population and the institution disappeared in most religions in the midHeian period. Slavery was practiced in Kyeshe up to the end of the sixteenth century. Korean captives from Hideyoshi’s invasion were sold on to European traders, although Hideyoshi banned slavery in 1590. The Edo bakufu did indeed prescribe enslavement of the immediate family of executed criminals in Article 17 of the GotDke reijD (Tokugawa House Laws), but the practice never became common.

The history of the Japan Houses from the fifteenth to the nineteenth centuries is a large part of the history of early-modern Korean daily contact with the Japanese. Nearly 450 years of contact at the ports prior to the intrusion of the West inscribed on the minds of the Koreans raw impressions about conducting business with their neighbors. That business and those impressions are the concern of Chapters 3 through 6, but we must first set the stage. This chapter addresses the question of Tsushima’s identity, primarily during the period from about 1600 to 1870.
