8th HQ patrol boats in Takeshima survey
[Maizuru] While the patrol boats Kuzuryu (270 tons) and Nagara (270 tons) of the 8th Regional Coast Guard Headquarters were mobilized for summer drills and were conducting general patrols, they berthed at Takeshima (subject of a dispute on a territorial sovereignty with South Korea) on the morning of the 28th. However, the party could not disembark owing to rough seas, and so surveyed the situation of the islands from the sea.
