During this time the city enjoyed a long period of peace known as "pax Tokugawa", and in the presence of such peace Edo adopted a stringent policy of seclusion which helped to perpetuate the lack of serious military threat.

However, this prolonged period of seclusion came to an end with the arrival of American Commodore in 1853. Agreed to open the ports of Shimoda and Hakodate, leading to an increase in demand for new foreign goods and the subsequent sharp rise in inflation.
