     View Summary

    This article focuses on the letters and reports about three French missionaries who began to stay in the Ryukyu Kingdom in 1855. Among a number of missionaries' documents collected in the Paris Foreign Missions, only those written in 1855 will be mainly examined to clarify how their arrival to Ryukyu was realized, how their life was settled and how the Ryukyuan government took measures for their settlement. These documents will provide complemental aspects to what we knew already about the French missionaries stay in Ryukyu through the documents as the Kingdom's official reports and the missionaries' already published letters.

     View Summary

    Among the eight French missionaries who stayed in the Kingdom of Ryukyus in the middle of the nineteenth century, Louis Théodore Furet passed 6 years 3 months of the longest time. Although the circumstances of the time did not allow the missionaries to pursue their real mission, they worked hard to learn languages to prepare for their future mission in Japan. In addition to it, Father Furet had activities in various academic fields. This article aims to overview, firstly, Furet's academic documents in the meteorology, the seismology, the ethnography, etc. On the other hand, Furet's letters will also help to clarify his strategy to keep a good relationship with the Ryukyuan authority.
