Dive experts and geologists have been amazed by the discovery of a pyramid-shaped rock formation off the coast of the Ryukyu Islands in 1987.

In 1987, a diver made an amazing discovery while exploring the coast of the Ryukyu Islands in southern Japan.

25 meters below the surface, he saw almost perfectly carved steps.

“Do you know the sensation of gooseberry? My hair is gone, it’s overgrown,” recalls Kihachiro Aratte, who was looking for a diving spot when he came across the structure near Yonaguni Island, part of the archipelago.

Known today as the Yonaguni Monument, this colossal structure is reminiscent of a 50-meter-long and 20-meter-wide rectangular pyramid, the world’s most spectacular underwater formation.
