Welcome to Yonaguni-jima

However, most visitors come to see what lies beneath the waves. In 1985 a local diver discovered what appeared to be human-made 'ruins' off the south coast of the island. Adding to the underwater allure are the large schools of hammerhead sharks that frequent the waters off the west coast, making Yonaguni perhaps the most famous single diving destination in Japan.
