The Yamato Surveys: Jamphel Yeshe
In the latter centuries of the First Age, the Yamato People had begun to survey much of the Ocean Belt, discovering a plethora of islands, settling many of them.
The island of Jamphel Yeshe was discovered by them after they had been blown off course by a typhoon during a survey of the Ainan Island Group. They dropped their anchors and made camp on the newfound land, following their standing orders, doing a coastal survey over the course of several months.
When the first maps were drawn up, the shape reminded the discoverer, Masao Tachibana, of the head of a whale, so he called it Kujiratô, Whale Island.
