The San Juan Bautista is a reconstructed sailing vessel based on the one originally constructed by Date Masamune, the lord of Sendai domain, which sailed from Tsukinoura (present Ishinomaki City, Miyagi Prefecture) with some 180 crew on board and led by Hasekura Tsunenaga on the 15th day of the 9th month of the 18th year of the Keicho era according to the Lunar Calendar (October 28, 1613).
This ship was the first Japanese-built Western-style wooden sailing vessel to sail across the Pacific Ocean twice and the naval engineering it contains is highly esteemed as ranking among the most advanced in the world at that time.
