On the website for the City Council of Coria del Rio, one can find information behind the surnameJapón’ that dates back to October 1614 when the Keicho Embassy and its leader, Samurai Hasekura Tsenenaga made the decision to settle down in the locality.

Due to this immense discovery, Coria del Rio’s City Council has carried out various activities and events annually to pay respect and celebrate the 400 years of history.
