In the early 17th century, Nguyen Hoang of the powerful Nguyen clan
established great trade relations with Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu of Japan. The
Nguyen lords of southern Vietnam were heavily involved in trade and as a
result, the trading port of Hoi An flourished and became the most important
trade port on the South China sea. Japanese red seal ships frequented the
Vietnamese port and with them brought silver, copper and bronze from Japan
in exchange for spices, sandalwood and Vietnamese agarwood. The metals
trade was vital to the Nguyen lords, for they needed coins for commerce and
bronze to cast guns. And, in turn the exotic Vietnamese spices and precious
woods were sought-after in Japan and were used to make incense.
