People of Baekje had settled in Biwako (琵琶湖), in Japan’s Shiga Prefecture (滋賀縣),

before the Joseon Royal Envoy passed through the region on its state visit.

This book shws such a visit, along with a picture of the Joseon Royal Envoy aboard

the main envoy vessel (Jeongsa-seon 正使船), its sails unfurled.

A flag marked Jeong (正) indicates that the main envoy is on board,

and the entourage and crew are depicted in detail. entourage
