天草下島での調査 (Field survey in Amakusa)

Two students were doing fieldwork for the entire day in Amakusa-Shimojima, an Island of Kumamoto Prefecture.

Left at 8am and returned at 8pm.  Actually, it is more than four hours drive to Amakusa. Too long for me..... but I must come back home by evening.
I think it was the toughest fieldwork of the season, and it ended rather well.
