Namamugi Incident

In 1862, Japan four British merchants met a procession of a feudal lord's regent while traveling. The merchants did not dismount and show respect, and the samurai cut them down. Britain's claims for compensation were unanswered, which led to the naval bombardment of Kagoshima city by the Royal Navy.
