- A similar record can be found in a Korean history book "Haedong Jegukgi( Records of Countries Across the Sea to the East) " written in 1471, around the same time as " Tsukushimichinoki".


- In this history book, it was written, "Hakata is written as 覇家台,石城府,冷泉津,筥崎津, etc., and has 10,000 houses. Shoni-dono and Otomo-dono governed the city, with Shoni ruling over 4,000 houses in the southwest and Otomo over 6,000 in the northeast”.

- 「筑紫道記」とほぼ同時期の1471年に著された、朝鮮の歴史書「海東諸国紀」にも同様な記録があります。


- この歴史書では「博多は、覇家台・石城府・冷泉津・筥崎津などと書き、住民は一万戸内外である。少弐殿と大友殿とが分治していて、少弐は西南四千余戸、大友は東北六千余戸を治めている。」と記されています。


- また「住人が業としているのは商業で、琉球・南蛮の商船が集まっている。朝鮮に往来するものは九州の内で博多が最も多い。」 と伝えています。


- この史料も、中世後期(室町時代)において海外貿易の博多への集中と人口の密集する都市的繁栄を実現していた博多の様子を示す記録として有名です。
