A while ago, Hashi wrote a post about Utsuro Bune: Japan’s First Modern UFO Encounter. Since then, there have been many UFO sightings in Japan, with most of them having a lot in common and appearing in the same areas. So what it is with Japan and UFO sightings? Let’s find out.
Hashi covered most of this one so I won’t rehash it too much here, but the video above does a pretty good job of covering it. Utsuro bune was one of the first modern UFO sightings, and it happened way back in the Edo period in Japan. A lot of people believe that utsuro bune is definitive proof that we aren’t alone in the universe, but who can say for sure?
UFO enthusiasts might tell you that this particular story is plausible. The Bermuda Triangle’s sister, the Dragon’s Triangle is a danger zone in the sea off the Southern coast of Japan. A large amount of boats have gone missing there along with 800+ people, never to be seen again. Boats that make their way into alien territory aren’t guaranteed to make it through. Some would say that the utsuro bune came from Dragon’s Triangle. Who really knows, though?
Japanese UFOs, Natural Disasters, and More
Apparently UFO sightings seem to increase drastically in the weeks leading up to Japan’s natural disasters including the earthquakes and tsunamis. Many of the UFO sightings are also of cigar shaped crafts/formations. Just check out the videos below. What do you think?
If you do a YouTube search for Japanese UFO sightings, you’ll find a ton of results. After going through them, I discovered that many aren’t really worth watching as they’re either obviously fake, or the camerawork is too shoddy to really discern the validity of the content. Either way, I think the above cases are definitely the most interesting ones out of the bunch, but feel free to check out the other results on YouTube and draw your own conclusions.
Do I believe in aliens? I’d say probably, but I think I believe that any other intelligent life out in the universe is probably way too far away from earth (the universe is huge!) to ever make contact with us – at least in my lifetime. I figure if there was intelligent life visiting our blue marble, they’d have made it more obvious.
But then how do I explain the occurrences in the above videos? I can’t really. I guess I’m just not sure. When it comes right down to it, I feel the same way about aliens as I do about ghosts and spirits and stuff. I’m open to the idea, but don’t really have any strong opinions on it one way or another. It is interesting to listen and learn about though.
Japanese ghosts are definitely some of the most interesting spirits out there. As for aliens visiting Japan as compared to the rest of the world? Who knows. I’d imagine that if aliens visited earth they’d try to make contact with who they saw as the dominant power of the planet. Japan definitely has a lot of cool technology, so maybe the supposed aliens are drawn to that. What do you think?
So tell me, do you think aliens are out there? Ever had a sighting of your own? If aliens did come to earth, what country do you think they’d be most likely to visit first? Let us know in the comments!
