    The Shimazu army departed from Satsuma province for Okinawa on 3m 4d (8 April 1609). Of the three eyewitness accounts, Ichiki Magobe’e Iemoto provides the first description of the operation, beginning with the time he left his home in Takayama on the last day of the second lunar month (4 April). He describes his arrival on 3m 1d (5 April) at the point of embarkation, which was Yamakawa, a small harbour at the end of the peninsula to the south of Kagoshima. Ichiki’s contingent must have been among the last to arrive, because the army had been assembling since 2m 6d (11 March).

    The strange title peejin, for the brave man who defended the bridge, refers to a local official with a local responsibility, not an inherited title, so the man described here was the officer responsible for Gusukuma, an area within Urasoe. The Advance by Sea With the capture of Urasoe and Tairabashi, the road to Shuri was open and the section of the Shimazu army that advanced by land was enjoying unqualified success. As for the assault by sea, neither Ichiki nor Kyan knew how the situation was progressing, but the author of Ryu-kyu- Gunki was a sea-captain, who actually made the short voyage down the west coast to Naha Port.

    It appears that some of the Satsuma army stayed at sea, because there is record of them later making an unopposed entry into Naha after Shuri had fallen. Even if a deliberate feint had not formed part of his initial plan, Kabayama’s decision to land and attack elsewhere shows good strategy skills. His decisions were no doubt facilitated by excellent intelligence, liaison and communication between the different units of the Satsuma army, a process that would have been carried out bravely and methodically by the highly mobile courier guards.
