Wasn't it that law that forbade foreigners to enter Japan?

Ended with the landing of Admiral...uhhmmm...Pershing, was it?

That follows this particular event. You are speaking of Commadore Perry and the Black Ships.

That's cool, I didn't know Hokusai's birthday is today. It is, however, not the event in question.
