ABSTRACT

This study is a research to examine Hachiemon's statement appered in『TAKESIMATOKAIIKENKI』. Hachiemon was executed in 1836, because he went over the water to go to Takesima which was forbidden island. He wrote untruth in his book. The fakes are that he didn't know the truth which Takeshima is the territory of The Joseon Dynasty and he went to the Takeshima just one time at 1833. He and Hamadahan knew that the central government. forbade the traffic to the Takeshima. Although knowing the prohibitional law he went to the island under the name of going to the Matushima. The political backing of Hamadahan makes the voyage possible. He promise a large profit. In this book, We can see the description which he got arms from a retainer. A smuggling of arms were popular at that time. The word of smuggling is not appeared in this book, there were similar contents in scontemporary books such as『Tenpozakki』・『Takeshimakijiryakudan』・『takeshimakoshow』. There are reports like that Hathiemon secretly trades arms which got from Edo with Chinese and Koreans at Takeshima, Hachiemon and Hamadahan expected a large profit from smuggling. So they knew the prohibition law, Hamadahan allowed Hachiemon sailing to the island under the name of going to the Matushima.
