      The Japanese built several large seagoing ships in the early seventeenth
      century. At least one of them sailed to Neuo Espania (Mexico).

      As for the Japan Current. Anyone growing up in the Pacific Northwest can
      tell you about Japanese glass fish floats washing ashore. The Japan Current
      runs into North America somewhere proximate to Grey's Harbour County,
