Moai Face, Yonaguni MonumentJAPAN'S LOST SUPER CIVILIZATION ?
In recent years the increasing number of books and programs on television discussing the mysteries of ancient Japan reflect a renewed interest in this area, highlights the fact that many unanswered questions still hover over the pages of Japan's history books. Many theories and hypothesis have been put forward over the years, and while conflicting at times, they all insist on one common point - somewhere in the pages of Japan's history certain crucial chapters are missing.
Tsutsuki Megalith, IwateWith much new physical evidence coming to light in
recent years, the possibility that an advanced
civilization yet to be identified existed during the Jomon period or before is gaining increasing credibility. As
extraordinary as this sounds on first hearing, until any
other official explanation can be offered regarding the many unidentified ruins existing across Japan, the startling and exciting possibility of a lost civilization
cannot be ruled out.
Yakushima MegalithThis report aims to present a general review of the
physical body of evidence to support a theory that a
super civilization once existed in ancient Japan. This is part of a body of ongoing work since 2001, to record and photograph the many sites of unidentified ruins
across Japan. Regrettably much of the physical
evidence that could support the theory of a lost
civilization in Japan has been lost, left to neglect or
destroyed due to modern day expansion. In other cases, it would appear that the stones from these ancient ruins have been used to create the castles and temples that
ironically make up the official version of Japan's ancient history today.
Nagusa Megalith area, TochigiWhat remains is a trail of puzzling ruins, pyramid
mountains, ancient script and petroglyphs found
scattered across Japan from remote mountain tops to
way beneath the waves of the sea off Okinawa. It is
imperative that we ensure the protection and
investigation of Japan's remaining ruins and OOPARTS
(Out of Place Artifacts) , as the last keys to unlocking the true origin of Japan and her people.
Amenoiwatate Shrine, NaraANCIENT PYRAMID NETWORK
Most people would be surprised to learn that an ancient network of pyramids exists across Japan and that these pyramids may in fact be the oldest pyramids in the world. This startling information was first brought to the attention ofthe public by Katsutoki Sakai in 1932, when he publicly announced the discovery of Ashitake Mountain in Hiroshima, the first place in Japan to be acknowledged as a pyramid mountain.
Ashitakeyama Pyramid, HiroshimaSakai was greatly influenced by the mysterious TakeuchiDocument which amongst other startling revelationscoded in ancient script （神代文字）, records theexistence of pyramid mountains across Japan. Japan's pyramid mountains are not the same as the stonestructures we usually associate with the Egypt orMexico, but rather make use of natural mountains themselves of which Japan is abundant.
Senganmori Pyramid, FukushimaSakai claimed that in countries where natural mountains were not present it became necessary to create man-made pyramids. Sakai's public announcement caused apyramid boom in pre-war Japan which then eventuallydied down until recent years, when startling new surveyresults renewed an interest in Japan's pyramidnetwork. Mountains believed to be pyramids can befound across Japan and share certain commoncharacteristics which define them as pyramids :astrological positioning of the mountain and actualpyramid shape, existence of stone megalith alignments either at the top of the mountain or in the nearby vicinity,existence of a stone circle and/ or sun-stone at the very top of the pyramid and presence of earthenware believed to be used for ceremonial purposes .
Whale Rock Megalith, FukushimaThese certain characteristics have led to the theory that pyramid mountains served asenergy conductors for the earth in a vast network of ancient technology spreading across Japan. Strange phenomenom such as bright lights and UFO sightings are also common at pyramid sitesfurther adding to the mystery of their purpose and origin.
Masuda Iwabune Monolith, AsukaThe majority of these ruins have yet to undergo any formal investigation except for those ruins whose massive
size alone ensured that they were noticed leading to formal research and surveys of the site. Most famous of all of Japan's OOPART ruins is the underwater temple
structure discovered in 1986 off Yonaguni Island in Okinawa. Continued research by Masaaki Kimura(University of the Ryukyus) has led to conclusive evidence that the
structure is man-made and may certainly pre-date what we currently believe to be the world's oldest
Yonaguni Monument,OkinawaMain evidence to date includes: tool marking, road and
stairway structure, letters/symbols, Maoi head, terrace
formation as well as a sun-stone and animal relief
structures. It is imperative that we ensure the
preservation of Japan's ancient ruins found both on land and underwater so that research may be carried out to evaluate whether they pre-date what are believedto be out oldest civilizations today as evidence so far
Amenoiwatate Shrine, NaraIf estimates that the Yonaguni monument date back to
between 6000-10,000 BC are correct, and that there is a connection between the underwater ruin and the lost
ruins on land, then the implications for human history are astounding!

Mt. Gozaisho Megalith, Mie
Mt.Tsukuba Megalith, IbarakiSurprisingly very little research has been undertaken
concerning Japan's ancient megaliths, and it is only in
recent years that surveys like the one being carried out at the Kanayama Megalith in Gifu are revealing fascinating evidence that whoever placed these stone structures had a deep understanding of astronomy and the movement of the sun on days such as the equinox and the solstice.
Kaneyama Megalith, GifuMany of Japan's megaliths are found near to or at the
top of pyramid mountains suggesting that their function was closely connected to the purpose of the pyramids
themselves. If theories that Japan's pyramid mountains served to regulate the flow of energy into the earth are
correct, then these stone megaliths mayhave acted as
energy conductors for the forces of cosmic energy on
days of astrological importance such as the equinox and solstice.
Tarabo Pyramid Mountain, ShigaCURIOUS MARKINGS When examining the ruins which
have no known origin across Japan's remote mountains and forests, it appears almost they have collapsed in the wake of a huge cataclysm. If it can be proved that the
underwater monument in Yonaguni is connected to the
lost ruins across Japan then the possibility of a 10,000BC datingwould confirm that that these ruins did indeed
survive the cataclysm of the last ice age which would
also account for the apparent collapsed state.
Mt.Gozaisho, MieJapan's underwater ruins have better survived time than those ruins remaining ruins on land which have been
subjected to weather corrosion and the massive land
development of modern day Japan. It is a formidable
task therefore to compile a conclusive body evidence to show they may be the remains of Japan's oldest
civilization. One vital key however exists in the form of
strange rows of markings found on certain ruin stones
which are almost consistent in shape and form all over
Kanagawa (top), Nikko (bottom)Obviously the work of human hands, what is the purpose of these rows of holes which have been found all over
the countryfrom lonely mountain tops in Iwate prefecture all the way down to the shores off Yonaguni? How were these holes made in an age where no metal tools existed? Since they have been found at sites all over the country, it is highly likely that they are the work of the same
civilization but according the history books no such
civilization existed in Japan's pre-history.Although it is generally believed that the introduction of
kanji into Japan from China in the 5th century are the
beginnings of written script in Japan, traces of earlier
script and petroglphys have been found across Japan.
This script is known as Kamiyoji and has been found in
ancient texts and carved into the stones at shrines and
in other objects of spiritual worship. Petrogyphs have
also been found across Japan and OOPARTSsuch as the Okinawa Rosetta Stone raise serious
questions as to the true origins of written scriptin Japan. The Rosetta Stone which is currently housed in the
Okinawa Prefectural Musuem, are a series of stone tablets found on the Okinawan mainlandstarting from the year 1932.
Ancient Script, ShigaBRIDGING OUR PAST WITH THE FUTURE Anyone who stands in front of the Great Pyramids in
Egypt, Stonehenge or theNazca Lines in Peru, cannot
help feel an excitement and sense of awe at the power
and wisdom of the creations left to us by ancient
civilizations.The same feeling is felt when the Yonaguni
underwater monument in Okinawafirst comes into sight, especially when our current understanding of history
has no place for such anomalies.
