Background: The 925 Japanese fishermen who are detained in the Korean prison of Pusan, expect shortly to be released and are busy preparing for this happy occasion.
The first batch expect to leave the prison on January 28. The prisoners will be loaded onto ships, bound for Japan, in groups of about three hundred accompanied by police squads.
While they wait, they undergo last-minute medical checks and inoculation and fill in the time playing dominoes and packing their luggage.
