------
In 1870 the Danish diplomat Julius F. Sick visited Japan to achieve approval for the laying of a telegraph cable between Shanghai, Nagasaki and Vladivostok by the Great Northern Telegraph Co. (Store Nordiske telegraph Selskab). The contract was signed on September 20, 1870 with a term of 30 years. The Japanese government confirmed the opening of an international submarine cable and the laying on land in Japan for a national telegraph service. For the organization and implementation of the Treaty the Great Northern Telegraph Co. had established various bases; the main base in Japan was located in Nagasaki.
