It took two years and three attempts, and I finally arrived in the deep inlet of Uken; I was welcomed by my mate Matt Pride and the Mayor. Also, I made new friends: Mitsu and his colleague Kenchan. Also, It was Shintaro`s final days with me on board Wahine.

Matt took me on some adventures, and I lifted the strength stone to prove my manhood!
