About the HACCHORO
The meaning of "HACCHORO" is a ship with eight oars.
This ship is a high-speed ship to protect General Ieyasu Tokugawa during the Edo period.
When Ieyasu traveled by boat, he was escorted using a fishing boat owned by a village fisherman.
However, the boat in the village traveled slower than General Ieyasu's ship, and was not in time for escorts.
Therefore, it is a ship that General Ieyasu specifically authorized the use of eight oars to speed up the ship..
