アイク・カブレラ is Ike (a-i-ku) Cabrera (ka-bu-re-ra) in Japanese. Ike is now famous in Japan. He was quoted in several stories about the new monument. That's awesome.
A Google News search of "マリアナ海溝" which is Mariana (Ma-ri-a-na) Trench (tsu-ren-chi) in Japanese results in 49 Japanese media stories.
I'm sure there are more stories, but I don't read a lot of Japanese and that is the best I can do.
These stories are very good for the tourism industry in Saipan. Our main market for tourists is Japan. These stories help solidify our reputation as a beautiful natural destination. The ball is now in MVA's court. It is their job to build on the media successes of Pew Environment Group and the Friends of the Monument.
