    DEJIMA is for the Dutch Traders and not for the Portuguese Traders! The Portuguese Traders were so Evil with their Roman Catholic Orders that almost destroyed Japanese culture, but the Dutch Traders were great to work with for 200 years during the great EDO PERIOD of JAPAN, the Dutch Traders had obeyed the Tokugawa Shogun and the Dutch were on DEJIMA to protect Japan against the Roman Catholic Missionaries from reaching Japan!
