The journey is relevant to Shimazaki Toson`s life cycle. The wandering intentions of his migration and journey is Toson`s life and literature being expressed in the form of his journey. When looking at Toson`s life as a long voyage, he destroys the boring life of forty which he was used to and instead takes on a journey on the sea to find new way out in life; a form of adventure. In that sense, Toson`s journey on the sea shows that he is free from his congested daily life cycle and his forgotten dream. Therefore I can deduce that his departure to the sea is not just to escape but more as a challenging journey to discover new creation. Especially as Toson makes the sea his border from when he leaves and returns, he compares his familiarity and unfamiliarity to his previous and new life. The 3 years of gap he spent on the sea as a stranger had to make him feel like home at his homeland however due to unfamiliarity even in his homeland it came down to him becoming a new person. As a result, through Toson`s journey on the sea in an attempt for a recreation in life has been demonstrated as a creative work of art. His first work after his return which was Umie is different from the pre-existing genres as it is a prose which has been created in order to find something new breaking away from the daily life. After the indulging the body and soul of strange places and strangers, the author used his personal prism as he was a voyager who has experience. Not only is this piece a great realization of his internal experience during the journey but also I believe it became the foundation of travel rostrum which was unfamiliar back at that time bringing it up to popular literature.
