    IF ever a man was intended by destiny for a particular career, Sir Ernest Satow was destined to be a diplomat in Japan. When he was a boy his fancy was aroused by pictures of Japan in some book of travel, and there and then he made up his mind that Japan was the place for him. When he saw an opportunity of becoming an interpreter in the Consular Service in Japan he seized it at once. Satow was born to an ethnically German father (Hans David Christoph Satow, born in Wismar, then under Swedish rule, naturalised British in ) and an English mother (Margaret, née Mason) in Clapton, North London. His surname is Sorbian in origin, meaning 'village of the sower'. He was educated at Mill Hill School and University College London (UCL).
