This is a good question. Historians have long debated the introduction of the breed. Some said that it was a product of China; Others say that Korea. Various origins introduce Buddhist monks, Chinese emperors, or European merchants to China with Chin anywhere from 500 to 1,000 years ago. But everyone agrees that it was the Japanese nobles who cultivated the breed as we know it today. The Chins were unknown in the West until 1854, when Japan reopened for trade after 200 years of secession.
