The shards of large dishes recovered from the excavation site would serve as “evidence” on the occurrence of the trading activity back in the 16th century, Nogami said.
Nogami identified the shards by drawing the rest of the pieces to determine the shape of the artifacts.
He said the recovered pieces of Yoshida porcelain characterized by its narrow bottom and Anita type with its wider bottom.
