The Pacific Triangle

The Devil's Sea or the Dragon Triangle are two of the common names for the length of water beginning at the southern end of Japan, and passing through several of the Izu islands.

It has been so named (like its Bermuda counterpart) as a result of the collection of mysterious disappearances that have occurred within this water space forming a shape like that of a triangle. This mysterious body of water first received recognition when it "stopped" two separate Mongolian attacks (AD 1264-81). In addition, this area was once a hotspot for spotting dragons!

An entire list of vessels that have disappeared in or over this area indicates that this is no mere body of water. Among the list is this infamous trip, involving a research team, sent aboard the infamous Kaiyo Maru No. 5 to record data and findings from their mission in "the triangle" to investigate underwater volcanic activity . The ship sunk, claiming to have been a result of an underwater volcanic disturbance, which has become a likely cause for some of the other disappearances in this area.

Several small Japanese fishing vessels have said to have disappeared in this area often between certain years --outliers on a normally "infrequent" disappearance curve. Planes have also disappeared in the airspace, and several times as ships and planes have passed through the area, they have disappeared off of RADAR tracking and even "lost time" claiming their clocks were set back a certain length of minutes to hours. One famous televised flight captured a crew flying over the area then losing all controls and electronics. The plane recovered shortly afterward, but the clock on the plane was set back exactly thirty minutes.

But wait, there's more! Let me know what you guys think of this blog post and I may write another post on this mysterious water space, and even mention some of the theories scientists have about the triangle and the tale of Urashima Taro.

Consider that "UFO" drawing from Japanese lore to be a taste of things to come.

I believe the Stoppage of the 2 Mongolian attacks is where the term Kamikaze first came into play.
