 Consulting the " logbook" recorded by the captain of the ship that took Sidotti from Manila to Yakushima, the "Seiyo Kibun" that described the encounter between Sidotti and the villagers of Yakushima, and the map of Yakushima in the Edo period, we explored around the Sidotti Landing Site.

 From the place where Koidomari's Tobei met Sidotti, we descended the precipitous cliff by following a rope and walked along a steep rocky area near the cove where Sidotti landed.

 We spread the wings of our imagination to what happened 314 years ago, near the dark night of the new moon.
