As the father of the Japanese postal service, his image is printed on the one-yen stamp. When Maejima was young, he received an education in Dutch Learning in Edo (present-day Tokyo), and when Commodore Perry arrived, he traveled to Uraga to interpret on behalf of the Edo Shogunate. Following this, Maejima became aware of the changing times, and he studied topics such as western artillery, navigation, and English. He later established the Japanese postal service system.
