In the evening of July 27 we went to see the preceding evening event of Hakusan-maru (reproduction of old Japanese ship) held at Shukunegi town 5km west of Ogi where King Bee is tied. In front of Hakusan-maru, a woman singer sang popular musics and a Japanese traditional drum show was palyed by a group"Kodo" . One young member of Kodo ,Rai Tateishi,had visited King Bee several times with other young nearby residents.
At 5:00 of July 28(today) King Bee left Ogi where she had stayed 10days. Ohshima-san's wife got off King Bee here. Several nearby young people who had visted King Bee several times and enjoyed drinking togerther got together on the wharf before 5:00. The young team member of Kodo, Rai Tateishi brought a Japanese drum(Taiko) together with the other young member and played Taiko and a bumboo fruit to see us off. We were deeply impressed by their kindness. Sayonara Sado and its people!
