Submarine Ruins (Yonaguni Island)海底遺跡
These are the mysterious structures called “Submarine Ruins” that lie submerged just 100 meters off the cape of Arakawabana on the south coast of Yonaguni Island. It is still shrouded in mystery whether they are artificially made historical ruins or a product of nature. It is a mysterious world on the reef where you can see stairs and terrace-like things. It is also possible to see the Submarine Ruins by diving or by glass bottom boat.

Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You’ve arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan’s most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
