Report of a Tidal Wave

Abstract :1件。9丁。12.6×510.2cm。楮紙。明和8(1771)年に大津波来襲。
This historical document is a report on existing circumstances and related requests from Yaeyama Islands to the Shuri Government. The first half had missing parts but the contents can be separated into roughly eight topics. This included a report of the effects of a tidal wave on Yaeyama in 1771, when disease spread and the people were idle from work. However,the situation improved after the dispatch of an envoy, and taxes were now being paid without delay. Just to name a few more, there were also notes on the desire to send officials to the mainland to study the production of fertilisers in order to increase the production of ramie and millet; as well as the desire to increase the age for marriage as many villagers chose to marry late.
