This is never a laugh.


We have been to this small island to this extent, making it even smaller.


So long as the so-called Japanese era has been around for a long time, and if our hero of the sea had been wrestling for a little longer now, such as the pirate ship of China and the blasphemous ship of Kyara Tomoe, what would be the result? , Must be an issue of interest.


However, at this rate, I wouldn't expect it if I could get a lot of hope.


It is the fishing life that keeps the former people alive on the coast for a long time.


However, it seems that the Japanese people, at least not the middle class, should be seen as fishermen, and now we are in a country where there are separate villages for fishing.


I think that these guys mainly took charge of one-handed work, such as transportation.


For some people, it may be impossible to think that there are boats and there is no fishing industry, but there are many examples of bleakness.


By the way, we drew a large squirrel to the end of the Korean Peninsula from the hut on the shore of the Yasobeya Continent, which was thought by Dr. Kume and others, to the end of the Korean Peninsula, and at that ferry. The theory that it would take us to the north coast of Kyushu would be influential, but I can't think of anything.


After all, the emigration of our ancestors came from the sea, not over the mountains.


It wasn't because I had landed in one place at a time with a number of small boats, but it wasn't necessarily from the north coast, but rather from the hama facing south in many cases. Because there is.


In other words, I think that the fisheries were still people of the sea, even if they didn't use them.



Somehow, some 30 years ago, there were people who tried to look at our birthplace from the direction of the coastal tides, etc., wondering how to come.


On the coast of Kishu Tosa or Hyuga, the branches of plants and the raw fruits of coconut palms sometimes flow around.


Even if you leave it to the transportation of nature, things from the southern island will arrive here at the end.


There were many people who wondered whether to find this island in this way.


At the same time, there are six things that immigration can be seen as drifting.


On the islands south of Kyushu, there were people who believed or went to this way from the beginning, but it is a little hard to imagine that they would be adrift with their wife and son. If you were to move under a ridge, you would normally believe that you were guided by an oracle or a dream report, but it is usually the wisdom that preceded you. I must have been able to hope for the shadow of, or if it was outside the contact between water and the sky, I had to be the one who had some kind of occasional traffic.


Even in the era of modern Nagasaki trading, it was the force of a regular wind that a ship sailed in the open sea once a year.


Relying on this wind to float on the ocean where the island is invisible is one of the difficulties of the power of Kobune.


Therefore, if you are a very immigrant, you should see it from one island to another, from one cape to the next, from time to time, and in Kinaga.


In other words, there are only one or two sea routes that cross the country, even if you connect the north.


In other words, I think it would be better to have an era in which we were proclaimed to have been the islanders of the small, inconvenient islands that were near here in the past.

First of all, it was argued that the boat was used from a very old age, and secondly that there was a certain purpose for movement, that is, it was due to some religious need. Saying that we had to look far for pearls and spices, and yet many other features of civilization, such as the work of the Iwaishi stone, the cult of the sun, the customs of black and white, the technique of turning people into trees, and other techniques. It was explained that the phenomenon of Jo was always distributed among many different ethnic groups in a combination, and it was not a coincidence that the features of civilization that were so complicated exist in many combinations. I can't.


Perhaps an ethnic group with an advanced civilization moved to the boat and became rich, and left this technique and the way to think, so it was an ancient duster, or, if not, a long-term dweller. , Claiming to be a foreigner who is fully influenced by his culture.


It is a strange theory, but based on the results of advanced studies of scholarship, more and more people have come out with materials that are less likely to become irrelevant.
