Japanese Once Lived in Ayutthaya

Elder Meeker and Elder Sowards studying the map of Ayutthaya at the Japanese Settlement museum. Interesting thing about these settlers is that they were Japanese 
Christians who left Japan (c1600) when the Emperor declared no Christians could live in Japan. Their population grew to 3000 before they were forced out due to a change of kingship in Thailand.
