Unknown Island (to Me)
I was roaming around with google earth and stumbled upon this...

Does anybody know what the name of this island off the coast of japan is, and what is used for?

Thanks:)

zoom in further on it, its got some weird structures on it, and a run way it seems, but no docks? very amazing how the island is shaped though. I am interested in finding out more on this place my self, the coast line looks a bit weird around the island.

Indeed, very strange!
I've been looking for some more info but I am even unable to find its name.
looks like a military installation

edit:

ok, I found a wiki entry about it

Here's the interesting thing... coral doesn't just form a mountain in the middle of the ocean for no reason. Perhaps there was an object for the coral to grow on top of? Perhaps some piece of ancient Lemurian technology, sunken into the ocean?

Ok, now I looked at it now on Google Earth, and there is indeed an underwater mountain where the island is. So, I guess the coral just formed on the mountain.

Just throwing questions out there.

Umm, isn't this the artificial island the Japanese made to house a large airport?

That island is cool!! If it wasn't discovered so long before routine flight, I feel certain it would have been named "Shark Tooth Island" Heh!

Oh, and as far as how islands are formed... some few of them are formed completely of bird turds... guano islands. Very strange world we live in.
