Portuguese traders brought the arquebus into Japanese warfare. These weapons were acquired through trade with the 'shifty foreign devils' and were then copied by Japanese craftsmen. By the time the Dutch arrived in Japan, the Portuguese and the Jesuits had been there for some time. The Dutch were the same in their willingness to provide arquebuses to any Daimyo who was willing to trade for them!

Note: A Daimyo can have either Portuguese traders or Dutchmen in his domain, but not both.
