Preparations to salvage a tour boat that sank off Hokkaido last month, leaving 14 dead and 12 people missing, were completed Saturday.

The raising of the 19-ton Kazu I will take place early next week. The boat, which currently sits on the seabed some 120 meters below the surface, went missing off the Shiretoko Peninsula on April 23.
