Pyramids and Mysteries of Ancient Japan

Ancient myths of Japan say that the ancient royalty of their land are descendants of “the Gods”. Rather than humans rising from a primitive state to progressively more civilization, the old legends tell of humans descending over time. To readers of these materials, this is not at all surprising. It is the “Hidden History” and “Fall from Grace” narrative that all cultures around the globe tell in one form or another.

We have already looked at the Yonaguni Monument, a large underwater Pyramid off the coast of Japan that points to a very ancient pre-flood civilization in the area. With this in mind, let’s explore more in the same region.

Ancient Japanese culture is generally referred to as the “Jomon Period” which is said to have lasted from 14 500 B.C. to 300 B.C. (even though newer evidence points to cultural artifacts dating back much earlier than that). As is typical for the false academic narrative, the people of this period are said to have been simple “hunter-gatherers”. Even just this article alone presents more than sufficient proof that these ancients could not have been primitive cave-men. One of the most well-known aspects of the “prehistoric” Jomon period are the “Dogu” figurines. Some say they look more extraterrestrial than human:

An estimated 15 000 of these figurines have been undug to date. In the context of “ancient alien” theory, some of suggested that the figurines show spacesuits and goggles. “Academics” say that no such thing is possible and that these figurines were part of “shamanistic rites”. In Japanese culture, the goggle-like apparatus is referred to as a “light-blocking-device”.

Ancient scripts say that in the old days, before Japan existed, there was the “Age of the Kami” (translated as “The Age of the Gods“). The Kami are central to Shinto belief-systems. Older Sources refer to them in a similar manner that we refer to Greek and Egyptian “Gods”. It is said that the Kami first existed purely in spiritual form but then descended into physical form (just like in the Hindu traditions of India which say we descended from the spiritual plane down to the physical plane and then from physical royalty down to physical barbarity).  More than a Million years later a descendant of the Kami becomes Jimmu – the first mythical Emperor of Japan. “The Chronicles of Japan” (Nihon Shoki – one of the most read, most important and the second oldest book on classical Japanese History) say that Jimmu is descendant from the “Gods” and that other Emperors around Planet Earth are also descendant from these Gods. It also freely admits that these Emperors are descendant from people who came to Earth from a place called Takama-ga-hara (translated as “heaven”) in “flying ships” – a quite straightforward admission in my view.

“Pyramid Capstones” on Mount Kasagi

There are at least four small granite Pyramids at different places on Mount Kasagi (near Kyoto, Japan). Their purpose, origin and age have been lost in time. Some of the Pyramids are so old and dilapidated that they are considered natural rock formations. What contradicts the “natural rock” view is that they are set up in a fairly straight line along a path. The Pyramids stand amidst trees and thick growing bushes indicating that they may have been built at a time before a forest was there. Each pyramid is approximately up to 2 meters (7 feet) high and 4 meters (14 feet) long. They were sculpted from hard granite. This is one of the four pyramids that is in the “best shape”. People refer to it as the “Misakubo Stone” (Misakubo is the name of the area):




This is another one of the four. It is also in good enough shape to be discernable as an artificial structure:



While researching these Pyramids I began running Japanese Blogs through the Google-Translator and picked up the following curious claims:

  • Locals say that the scratches on the Pyramid point to the location of ancient petroglyphs in the forest.
  • It is said that the Pyramids are at the mid-point of Mount Kasagi, forming a straight line that points to the peak of the mountain as well as to a sacred shrine at the foot of the mountain.
  • Some claim that an “eye-symbol” has been scraped off the pyramids. Adding to this conjecture, it is claimed that these pyramids were the capstones of the Egyptian Giza Pyramids.
  • The Pyramids are located near water sources.
  • According to at least one source, one of the Pyramids has been removed and placed in the “Misakubo Folk Museum”

The “Rock Ship” of Masuda

The images below show “Masuda-no-Iwafne” or “Rock Ship of Masuda”, a deeply mysterious structure that also stands in the middle of what is now forest. It is 11 meters (36 feet) long and 8 meters (26 feet) wide, 4.5 meters (15 feet) high, made of solid granite and apparently carved as one piece. It is estimated to weigh 80 tons. The two square holes go through to the ground below it. It is located on a hill near the village of Asuka (Nara Prefecture, Japan). The whole area is full of interesting ancient sites, megaliths and carvings but the “rock ship” does not seem to be related to them. It is unknown who built it, when it was built or what its purpose was. The area is governed by Buddhists whose written records go back many thousands of years – but there are no known written records of this structure. This points to the possibility that it is older than Buddhism itself. While there are many very old Buddhist structures in the area, the Rock-Ship resembles none of them.



In the pre-Japanese language of the Ainu people, Asuka means “flying birds”. It is in this same area of “flying birds” that we also find one of the only structures in Japan that bears some similarity to the Rock-Ship:

The Ishi-no-Hoden Megalith

This massive structure called “Ishi No Hoden” (Rock of the Heirloom) is 6.45 meters wide, 5.7 meters long. It is not known who originally built it and why. Considering that these are the largest and most impressive structures in the area, it is curious that nobody knows their origins. The origins of many lesser structures are documented in History books, why not the most grand? Based on the greater context of Atlantis-Research, I believe it is because they originate from a time forgotten, from the pre-flood days. This cube was dug out of the ground. There are no traces of tools, machines, pickaxes, chisels or any other instruments having been used in making it. Its construction and the technology used, as well as how such a heavy rock might have been transported, remain a complete mystery.




This is an 1832 drawing of the structure by the German doctor Phillip Franz who covertly entered Japan disguised as a Dutchman. The drawing indicates that it appears to have looked less worn in its original state.





Small Step Pyramids in Deep Forest

These type of small man-made step-pyramids are scattered across Japan and Korea, many of them hidden in deep forest. Their original builders and their purpose are lost. My guess is that they are meant to emulate older, bigger and more impressive Pyramids. It is said that the Buddhist Pagodas are modeled after them. The Pyramid in this picture is one of around 30 Pyramids scattered around the Kumayama area.



Artificial Mountains?

Japanese “academics” appear just as reluctant as western “scholars” to update their History books. One example of this: In the year 1935 a man named Sakai Katsutoki published a book called “The Pyramids of Japan”. Among many other things, the book claimed that several mountains where intentionally shaped like pyramids 23 000 years ago. Seeing the author as a threat to officially sanctioned versions of History, Japans secret police of the day seized and destroyed all copies of the book that they could find and restricted the authors movements.

These are the twelve mountains he claimed were artificially carved Pyramids. I have no way to verify these claims and remain doubtful of them, but as the book is not carried in any Japanese Public Library and even less available outside of Japan, I`ll list the mountains here for future researchers:

  1. Ashitake-yama, Hiroshima
  2. Togari-yama, Toyama
  3. Kurai-yama, Gifu
  4. Goyosan, Iwate
  5. Oishigami, Aomori
  6. Kuromanta-yama, Akita
  7. Sanbin-yama, Shimane
  8. Tsurugi san, Tokushima
  9. Himurogatake, Kyoto
  10. Minakami yama, Nagano
  11. Sengan mori, Fukushima
  12. Hachiman-yama, Hyogo

This is Mount Seganmori which is apparently known as a “UFO Hotspot” in Japan:


This is Kuromanta-yama, which modern bloggers claim is a 7-stepped Pyramid.  This was allegedly confirmed by x-rays deployed by a university team. I could not verify the truth of any of these allegations:


This is Akitashe-yama. What makes this site more interesting is that the mountain or alleged Pyramid has a scattering of megaliths and artificially formed ancient structures on it.



I am generally skeptical of claims of mountains and hills being Pyramids underneath. If it weren’t for the books being seized by secret police and the author confined, I wouldn’t even bring it up. But where there is such a dramatic and bizarre overreaction by authorities, there might just be something to it.

The Okinawa Stones

These are a few of many “Okinawa Stones” found on Okinawa, Japan. Identical engravings have reportedly also been found on underwater rocks in the direct vicinity of the  Yonugani Underwater Pyramid. No currently known ancient culture is associated with these engravings, though similar markings are said to have been found as far away as South America and India.





All evidence points to the existence of an unknown but highly advanced culture residing in Japan (and all over the world, for that matter). This article has provided only a brief overview of the region with much more to research and delve into as more data sees the light of day.
