Japanese explorer claims to have uncovered the location of the ruins of the lost city of Mu.
Many scientists dismiss the existence of Mu (sometimes called Lemuria) as sheer fantasy on the lines of the lost continent of Atlantis.
But marine geologist Masaaki Kimura believes he has found its ruins in the waters off southern Japan.
Undaunted amid persistent scepticism, he has worked for decades on proving that a group of extraordinary rock formations off Japan's southern-most island of Yonaguni is actually the foundations and evidence of an ancient culture that disappeared into the Pacific over 4,000 years ago.
Mr Kamura believes the city had a castle, a shrine, a triumphal arch, Moai-like statues found on Easter Island and even a coliseum once upon a time, when the city was above water.Yahoo news - http://uk.news.yahoo.com/itn/20070824/tw
