Often referred to as the Devil\’s Sea, Japan\’s Ma-No Umi area is a place off the coast that seems to have all the hallmarks of the famous Bermuda Triangle, and yet isn\’t quite as popular.
It is one of the twelve Vile Vortices and as you can already tell, it is very close to the city of Tokyo, about 60 miles south to be precise. More and more anomalies were detected around this area as these events ensured that many paranormal authors showed up here to record the area\’s irregularities thoroughly.
The Devil\’s Sea is also often called the Dragon\’s Triangle, and according to most experts, you can\’t find it on most marine maps, similar to the Bermuda Triangle.
Many believe that the Dragon Triangle is the remaining city of Atlantis and that its defense systems are still active, which is causing all the nearby anomalies.
As you can already guess, a large number of planes and ships have already disappeared here, which is very similar to the situation that was seen around the Bermuda Triangle.
Many also believe that a dragon actually lives around the Dragon Triangle, from which it takes its name. That would definitely explain the disappearances, to say the least.
In the 13th century CE, the Mongol Emperor Kublai Khan wanted to cross the sea and conquer Japan, but he was never able to conduct his invasion as his ships kept disappearing at sea. A total of 40,000 people and an entire naval force were lost that day here.
Many believe that this is actually the former site of an underwater a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ base. There is another legend that supports this theory: the tale of Utsuro-Bune. The oldest account dates back to 1803, when two strange tales began to circulate in Japan.
As the story goes, Japanese sailors found a hollow ship floating aimlessly in the Pacific. Circular in shape, the ship was covered in glass windows. Naturally, the sailors towed the ship to shore and were surprised to find a very beautiful woman sitting inside, holding a trunk.
Pale and red-haired, the woman spoke a strange language and wore equally strange clothes. Unable to initiate any meaningful communication, the traveler made a hand gesture encompassing the sea and left the sailors dumbfounded as she returned to her ship and set sail.
Utsuro-Bune, as she was nicknamed, would make appearances all along the coast of Japan the following year. No one knows who she was or where she came from, but speculation about her supernatural origins abounds.
