‘Ghost Ships’ Are Being Found In Japan That Are Coming From Korea

Published on 31 August, 2017 at 8:15 pm By

Several mysterious Korean ships and boats are being found in Japan and the mystery of them is far from solved.

These boats and ships have decomposed bodies on them which are being tested in laboratories in Japan. In the last five weeks, several ghost ships have entered Japanese waters and evidence suggested that these boats have come from North Korea. However, it is not known if they are defectors or fishermen.

The Japanese Coast Guard has mentioned that this is not the first time that they have found Ghost Ships. However, this is the first time that they have found 12 boats in just five weeks. A Coast Guard spokesperson stated,

We think they possibly met with an accident due to the weather, but we can’t confirm as the condition of dead bodies were bad.

The Coast Guard also revealed that it remains unclear as to how long the bodies and the boats have been at sea. While the three boats that were found in November last year had dead bodies which were three months old, these ones are just one to two weeks old.



 

One of the boats has Korean People’s Army written on it which clearly showed that the boats are from North Korea. The flow of currents in the East Sea could have made these boats float to Japan from the Korean Peninsula. The Coast Guard said,

The Tsushima Current flows past the Korean Peninsula, along the west coast of Japan, leading to the Tsugaru Current, which flows between Japan’s north island and Honshu, the main island — past prefectures where boats have been found.

 

It remains unclear if all the bodies recovered belong to men. The analysts suggested that these could be Korean fishermen as the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, has been forcing the fishermen to increase their productivity.
