 Case that Russian warship posadonikku occupied imosaki of short cogongrass gulf which opened in the center of Tsushima in 1861 (Bunkyu 1) of the late Tokugawa period got up. Captain biriryofu surveyed in defiance of protest of Tsushima feudal clan and went to reckless action to shoot guard dead in great Funakoshi Seto.
 Furthermore, in the Shogunate, negotiations run into difficulties because they build barracks and showed posture of long-term stay though they dispatch Magistrate of Foreign Affairs, Tadamasa Oguri. Russian warship withdrew by pressure of British warship from the occupation from Tsushima half a year later.
 Time is the time of imperialism. Russia taking southing policy schemes the occupation of short cogongrass gulf for warm-water port, and one U.K. is also said to be when it was plan to occupy Tsushima by oneself if Russia does not withdraw.
 Russia continued open southing policy, and, after Mikuni interference after Sino-Japanese War, it was in a situation that Japan and war of Russia were not avoided, and Tsushima which was strategic point in military affairs was made fortress afterwards around Gulf of short cogongrass.
