On my voyages to Japan I seldom pass the vicinity of Batanes islands owing to frequent Gale weather on that area. However in good weather on the voyage to Japan it is advisable to sail in the vicinity of Batanes islands so that your ship can ride on the north-going current which originates from Catanduanes island and the Pacific Ocean. This mentioned current became the Kurushio Current which track is south of Japan then to Mexico in Central America.
