Americans in Nagasaki in late 1800s/early 1900s

What in the Lord's name would Americans have been doing in Nagasaki? A distant cousin provided a cabinet photo of three men in what appear to be some type of uniforms, but they do not appear to be military uniforms. The belt buckle on the middle man clearly says "US".

Were there American "expeditions" in the late 1800s or 1900s like missions or humanitarian missions? Any insight into this would REALLY be appreciated! I'm attaching the photo to this posting. Thank you.
