Kinsei koumei sugoroku [Modern famous occurrence board game ]
Meiji 9 [1876]. "Japanese board game, printed color woodblock on paper (approx. 24"" x 28""); repairs along the 2 central folds on the verso; otherwise a very good, clean example. The game consists of 21 different woodblock illustrations, each one representing a task, geographical setting, or a hazard through which Perry and his compatriots (in the first square at Kurihama) must pass to get to the Emperor's celebration (the 21st square, a drinking festival). Players would have game pieces (not present), and by rolling dice the pieces move around the board through various geographical locations and hazards, including an earthquake, Formosa, a sword festival, drunken soldiers, assassins, a rain storm in Uneo, etc."
