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 and 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, performing 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.
