According to ¡¸Arantainjoseongangpyochakiljigeon(ä¹ÕµöíìÑðÈàØË°ø÷ó·ñýìéËì)¡¹,
after Hamel and his mates arrived in Goto, they were
sent to Nagasaki by Goto Morikiyo(çéÓ÷àüôì = çéÓ÷ÚÅÝ»i), the
governor and uncle of Morikach(àüã).
Hamel wrote in his report that he met a government official
in rank No. 3 in Goto.
After arriving in Goto, they anchored for 3 days before
being sent to Nagasaki closely watched both on board
and in land.
When they arrived in Nama(Ò¯Ø¤), Goto(çéÓö), they were reported
to Nagasaki under a general policy of a shipwrecked
foreign ship in Japan. On Sept. 13, immediately after
the sun rose, they left for Nagasaki under the escort
of two large ships and two small ships.
Japan made a policy of sending
to Nagasaki cases of shipwrecked in Japanese territory
On Sept. 14, they landed in the Nagasaki Port and met
an VOC interpreter.
He asked their whole story and recorded it. A written
evidence was handed to the Nagasaki governor. At noon,
they were examined by the governor.
The governor highly congratulated them on their great
spirit of adventure crossing a boundless expanse of
water and their winning over freedom only with such
a worn-out and old ship.
Then, they were sent to Deshima,
an artificial island where the VOC branch was located.
They were warmly received from Willem Volger, Nicolas
de Roeij, and other staff.
Eventually, they could get out of the painful and dangerous
life under compulsion in Joseon for 13 years and 28
Willem Volger started Deshima along with seven ships
on Oct. 1 and left Japan on Oct. 23. However, Hamel
and his mates could not go with them because the Japanese
government had not finish the interrogation.
The Japanese government ordered
Hamel and his mates to stay for at least one year.
