These anomalies goes deep in the ancient and dark past of Japan. In the area of the territory of Asuka some megaliths carved in the granite have been uncovered, and whose origin is, still today, completely unknown. Who build them, why and how... Till today these huge monoliths remain an absolute mistery. The largest and most unusual of the carved stones is the Masuda-no-iwafune (the “rock ship of Masuda”). The stone carving, which stands near the top of a hill in Asuka, is 11 metres in length, 8 metres in width and 4.7 metres in height, and weighs approximately 800 tonnes. The top of has been completely flattened and there are two one-meter square holes carved into it and a ridge line that is parallel to both holes. At the base of the stone are lattice-shaped indentations which are believed to be related to the process that was used by the builders to flatten the sides of the rock.



This is a mysterious boulder called “Ishi no Hoden”.Size: Width 6.45m, Height 5.7m, Depth 5.45mLiterally translated, “ishi” means “rock”, “no” means “of”, “hoden” means “heirloom”.

The village of Asuka is located in the Takaichi District of the Nara Prefecture in Japan. Asuka is an ancient land with historical interest. It has its origins in the Tumulus Period (250-552 AD), also called Kofun jidai, which means Old Mound period. This era of Japanese history is characterised by a particular type of burial mound that was popular at the time; specifically key shaped earthen mounds surrounded by moats. One of the most unique features of Asuka is the multiple carved granite stones in peculiar shapes in various parts of the region.

That's really cool. Never heard of this before. If I get a chance to hop over to Japan, I'm definitely going to make the time to see this first-hand and bring some photos back for your thread.

Absolutely Amazing.

It is strange that more we dig more we discover and more we discover more remain unknown....

More ancient monuments we bring up to light, and more the darkness of the remote past fall above us...

Does the geographical location of these fall on the world energy grid point calculated by Bruce Cathie?

Whoa, first pic looks like something hi tech.
2nd pic ..... cube ? back of TV ?

I think this strongly related to the submerged Yonaguni monument.
Clue - Straight granite cut and huge.

But the design really doesnt make sense at all, same like Yonaguni.
One thing for sure, the ancients are high technology people and they build weird big stuff.

You get SnF this time Arken.

“ishi” means “rock”



I knew it...it's just...rocks


On a serious note...nice find Arken...haven't heard about this. These constructions seem rather sophisticated.

Wow.
Somebody had technology and skills far beyond what we believe "early man" possessed.
Amazing find and a true head-scratcher.

And yet more evidence of that mysterious ancient and global civilization that cut and quarried stones so massive nobody knows how they did it. Some day they are going to connect the dots.

That first picture definitely looks like a downed UFO. Japans history is replete with tales of craft coming to earth. Many feature themes about a princess that piloted one of these craft. She supposedly kick started Japanese culture.

Great find! S&F

I find the ancients abilities to work stone truly amazing, whether they used copper chisels or another method the quality of their work was phenomenal.

Those images look like some of the ancient ruins from Assassins Creed Black Flag. Wonder if Ubisoft was inspired by these.
