On January 6, 1921, McKay and Cannon departed from Shimonoseki, Japan, on a steamer bound for Pusan, Korea. Over the next ten days, they traveled up the Korean peninsula towards Manchuria, eventually entering northern China. After arriving in Beijing (Peking), McKay dedicated the “Chinese realm” for the future preaching of Mormonism. McKay spent time observing the Asiatic customs of the day, frequently making comparisons between the Korean, Chinese, and Japanese peoples. McKay made clear his frustrations with local beggars and commented on the poverty-stricken state of the Asian countryside. Having completed their tour, the two men traveled south to Shanghai, where, on January 16, they departed on the steamer Tenyo Maruru for Yokohama to conclude their tour of the Japan Mission.
