The envoy to Japan, Yang Zai, arrives at Hakata and meets representatives of the Southern Court's Sei-sei shôgun-fu (Office of the Subjugation of the West), headed by Prince Kanenaga. The envoy, on behalf of the Ming Emperor, requests that efforts be made to stem the tide of wakô attacks; he is detained, some of his men are killed, and Kanenaga refuses to agree to any diplomatic ties.
