 The rice field in front of the church was harvested. This rice is grown without pesticides by Atsuhiro Iwakawa, the head of Koshima Village. This rice was named "Tobei Rice" after Tobei of Koidomari village whom Sidotti encountered near the coast 300 years ago. I hope that it will be used to spread the "Yakushima Sidotti Memorial Museum Establishment Project" in the future as a medium to connect people, just like their historic encounter.
