2 questions ?

1) Why was it necessary for the United States among other Western nations to spearhead and open Japan, which had been following a policy of self-imposed isolationism for over two centuries?



2) Why did the Tokugawa government in Edo succumb to the American pressure without any resistance and abandon its two-centuries’-old seclusion policy? What were the significant consequences of Tokugawa’s signing of the Treaty of Kanagawa with the United States?
