2.3 – UNDERWATER WORLDS (11.11.10)

THE HOLLOW SHIP [4d]

As an island nation, it should come as no mystery that much of Japan’s rich history is tied to the waters of the Pacific Ocean. But although many of Japan’s legends are largely unknown to the West, some are drawing the attention of Ancient Astronaut Theorists. One such legend dates back to 1803, and traces its origins to a beach north of Tokyo.

“Allegedly, a craft that was quite large in size washed up on the shore in Japan.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“A strange round ship drifted ashore in this area. People investigate the inside of the ship. They found young, beautiful woman inside the boat.”

       – Kazuo Tanaka (Prof., Gifu Univ.)

“The woman did not speak any language they could identify. There were written inscriptions inside her craft that they could not identify, and she’s clutching this box that she didn’t want anybody to touch.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“In some legends the box was used to carry her lover’s severed head. However the shape of the box a little bit different…from the box traditionally used for the severed head in Japan. I have no idea the function of this box. It’s an interesting mystery.”

Kazuo Tanaka (Prof., Gifu Univ.)

Known as the legend of the Utsuro Bune, or “Hollow Ship,” the details of the story have puzzled historians for centuries. Where, for example, did the mysterious hollow ship come from? Could it have come from the area of the submerged Yonaguni monument? Who was the strange woman? And what were the contents of the box she guarded so carefully? Was it a human head? Or was it, as some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe, a type of brain or other form of extraterrestrial intelligence?  If so, could it have been intended as a gift to the early Japanese by an ancient space traveler?

“There’s five different drawings that have survived from completely different regions of Japan. They’re almost identical to modern UFO reports.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“The motif of this legend is the same as that of a modern UFO legend…that is, visitors from other world in disk-shaped craft. I think this legend may have a key to solving the modern UFO legends.”

Kazuo Tanaka (Prof., Gifu Univ.)

As evidence to support their claims, Ancient Astronaut Theorists point to early Japanese carvings and statuary, each suggesting a variety of extraterrestrial encounters.

“This is a Dogu figure, and it comes from Japan.  And even to the untrained eye, you look at this, and it’s as if this being is wearing some type of a suit – with a helmet, some goggles, on the back there are all these weird buckles and circles, you know, straps. Very similar to a modern-day space suit. In my opinion, this is a likeness of a possible extraterrestrial that visited Earth thousands of years ago.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Archaeologists have catalogued the existence of more than 15,000 Dogu figures made during the Jomon period of prehistoric Japan, dating from approximately 14,000 to 300 years BC. But could, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe, these strange Dogu figures really be a primitive interpretation of a pressurized space suit or diving apparel?

“The story behind those Dogu figures is very clear, and anyone can go and read translations of the ancient texts that the Dogu, a long time ago, descended from the sky and taught the first Japanese people in various disciplines.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“And the whole Japanese culture, including the Kimono, the tea ceremony, the use of wasabi and ginger for eating sushi, the way that they build their architecture, their written language, everything they say came from these visitors, from these gods, from the Universe.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“The pictures shows beings who look like astronauts. They are dressed like an astronaut. They have the helmet as an astronaut. They have some strange tools in their hands, tools which we do not understand. Now, there is a link. The Japanese call it ‘Dogus.’ In North America, we have still the Hopi tribe, in Arizona, and the Hopi Indians are still making today Kachina dolls. Kachina dolls look similar to the Japanese Dogu figures. Further back, in the Sahara Desert, Africa, we found cave paintings. When you see the picture, you see definitely an astronaut suit. No doubt. Absolutely. Now, you compare these cave paintings with the Kachina dolls of the Hopi, and with the Dogu of Japan. You have one line.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

 

Do the mysterious Dogu figures provide tangible evidence of extraterrestrial encounters in Japan’s ancient past? And does the legend of the Utsuro Bune suggest that the Earth’s oceans may be hiding even more proof of alien contact? Perhaps the answer can be found deep in the waters off the coast of India.
