Takeshima Study (I & II)

Every year in February or March, we prepare ships and depart from Yonago, then, moor the ships in Oki Province. We wait until we more or less have tailwind and fair tide in early April, and then hoist the sails. We first called at a small island called Matsushima (present-day Takeshima) and started to fish. Subsequently we sailed for Takeshima (present-day Utsuryo Island (Ulleungdo)), and fished during our stay on the island. When autumn came, we sailed to return.
