(Small Notes for the Issue)
"Bankoku Shinryokan" is a newly built convention center in Busena Promontory, which was the site of Kyushu-Okinawa Summit 2000. The name, "Bankoku Shinryo," is taken from the engraved inscription on the bell, which was formerly installed in the main hall of Shuri Castle (Ryukyu royal residence), meaning "bridge over the nations of the world."
