2009 – The beginning of this trip
Hateruma Island, Japan’s southernmost inhabited island – the place Nakata chose as the starting point of his journey.
The name of this island derives from ”Hate No Uruma (end of URUMA (coral reef))”. Nakata planned to head toward the northernmost point of Japan from this land.
