Abstract

In the 17th century, Dezima was the only port in Japan that allowed VOC ships anchored after departing from Batavia, before leaving for Holland, and vice versa. In Dezima, the first German resident was Philip F. von Siebold (1796-1866) and in Dezima also introduced the "Science of the West" Rangaku (Dutch Science), which was the forerunner of Western science development in Japan. In Batavia,there was also Western Medicine in Doctor of Java School as forerunner of medical science in Indonesia. This paper focuses on the elaboration of the background of early development of Western science in Japan and Indonesia, through Dezima and Batavia.
