Approximately 25 Kagoshima prefecture employees from various departments participated. We received comments such as “I was impressed'' and “I was surprised.'' It was a great opportunity for them to learn about the unknown history of Yakushima and deepen their understanding.

Folklore scholar Tsuneichi Miyamoto states, “Accepting diverse values ​​that change by introducing values ​​from outside is an image of the common people who are not closed-minded but full of importance.'' Regarding the meeting and interaction between Sidotti and Tobei, some people said that this quote resonated with them the most.
