[英文]This photo was taken by Sasaki Shunichi 佐々木舜一 in August, 1911. Mori Ushinosuke supplied this caption: ""A boat of the Yami of Orchid Island. This place is for launching boats to sea. These boats are built by hollowing out a single log. They join several boards together to build the keel 竜骨. The carvings differ from village to village. By viewing the carving design, it is quickly evident which village the boat belongs to. They weave a type of fibrous plant to make the sails"" translated from Japanese(Mori 1918:2, p. 9). Kano Tadao$s illustrated ethnography contains a picture of an abaca-fiber sail like the ones pictured in this postcard; it is called a ""virad-no-tatara."" Kano notes that these sails are used on boats large and small (Kano 1956, p. 294).
