Hmmmmmmm. . . . Japan's Ancient Underwater "Pyramid" Mystifies Scholars
Submerged stone structures lying just below the waters off Yonaguni Jima are actually the ruins of a Japanese Atlantis—an ancient city sunk by an earthquake about 2,000 years ago.

That's the belief of Masaaki Kimura, a marine geologist at the University of the Ryukyus in Japan who has been diving at the site to measure and map its formations for more than 15 years.

. . .

"The largest structure looks like a complicated, monolithic, stepped pyramid that rises from a depth of 25 meters [82 feet]," said Kimura, who presented his latest theories about the site at a scientific conference in June.

There's a few photos of the underwater site and a couple comparative ones of terrestrial features. One can certainly see how they could appear man-made, but it will take far more conclusive evidence than this.
