The Japanese photographer Yoji Ookata has made an amazing discovery just off the coast of Japan. While swimming near Amami Oshima, discovered underwater crop circle, 6-foot diameter circle almost 80 feet below sea level. These circles are made by a small puffer fish that spends days and nights creating. They are meant to attract mates and to house eggs, which rest in the centre. An interesting tidbit about that puffer fish is that these sculptures are created with all but one single fin.
Jōmon Sugi This cryptomeria tree’s 83-foot height and 53-foot girth makes it the largest conifer in Japan. The tree grows in a misty, old-growth forest on the north face of the tallest mountain on Yakushima island in Japan. Tree rings indicate the venerable cryptomeria is at least 2,000 years old, though some estimate it could be as old as 7,000 years.
