Yunaguni Underwater Ruins

Yunaguni is the name of the westernmost island of Japan. It is famous for the underwater ruins these years.Divers congregate on the island in winter due to the large population of hammerhead sharks found in nearby waters. It was diving to scout for a good place to observe the sharks which led to the discovery of the “monument”, a part of which is two closely spaced pillars which rise to within eight feet of the surface. Study of the curiosity is hampered by a significant ocean current sufficient to exhaust divers if they swim in the opposite direction.
