Decades later, after Japan had tired of being controlled, Japan began to rebel and claim territory for itself, such as China and Taiwan.
A few years after the treaties were signed, US and European armies opened fire on two Japanese cities to show military dominance.
Japan before it was opened up
Emperors had no jobs other than having the emperor title.
The US Government sent Commodore Perry to try to imperialize them like the European countries did with Africans, but they said it was to protect trade.
Military guards had more authority than the emperor did, they practically ran the country

Soon after, Japan became a world power, becoming the first Asian country to have full equality with the US and European nations.
