Large and middle-sized Benzai boats and Isaba boats at Oura, Nagasaki. The two at the right are relatively large Benzai boats built in the Kansai style of about 1000 "koku ", and the one in the center is a middle size of about 500 koku. The one to the left, which is small and has a different form, is probably the Isaba boat that was popular in the Kansai area for travel over short distances.
