The Kaigai iden, written by Saitô Masakane in 1850, tells the stories of Yamada Nagamasa and Hamada Yahyôe, Japanese figures prominent in Ayutthaya (Siam) and Taiwan in the early 17th century.

The text was translated into English by J.M. James, and was published in 1879 under the title "A Short Narrative of Foreign Travel of Modern Japanese Adventurers."[1]
