The story of the Yonaguni ‘underwater monument’ continues its resurrection, with front page coverage at no less a website than National Geographic (what would Zahi say!):
Submerged stone structures lying just below the waters off Yonaguni Jima are actually the ruins of a Japanese Atlantis—an ancient city sunk by an earthquake about 2,000 years ago.
That’s the belief of Masaaki Kimura, a marine geologist at the University of the Ryukyus in Japan who has been diving at the site to measure and map its formations for more than 15 years.
Kimura’s claims are rebutted by none other than Dr Robert Schoch…but you don’t need National Geographic for that, considering we did that two weeks ago. In any case, interesting to see Yonaguni pop up on such a high profile website (note that NG also have a four image gallery).
