Japan A good friend of mine, and previous instructor for your shop, Lt. Col. Bill Vikers was stationed there and ran a dive club. Said the diving was great! Let the rest of us know about it!

Exclamation Underwater Ruins - Yonaguni, Japan

This claim has been around for a long while, but I just caught this story:

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/A...ow/2316128.cms

Scientific opinion is divided on these "ruins," and from what I've seen on several documentaries, I'm skeptical yet still trained to (try) and be open minded. Has anyone dived there and if so what were your perceptions (please explain)? I'm planning on taking a look for myself before I cash out of the land of the rising sun but am interested in others' thoughts (if you've been there or not). I thought this story was a real crack up. There is no new evidence, and yet the claims seem to be growing exponentially more grandiose. Questions, comments, observations?

Seems to be evidence to support both theories. I'm like you... I would like to go and look for myself :-)

I would love to go, and I'm closer than most, but it's cost prohibitive. Maybe I can sweet talk the wife into selling her car...
