Fumi-shima in December 2008

Fumi-shima (経島?) is an islet 180 metres (590 ft) from the shore near Izumo, Shimane, Japan. Underwater, in this location, one finds a variety of stone structures reminiscent of human activity, such as formations resembling stairs and others resembling flowers. They do not appear to be from the Jōmon period in origin.[1][unreliable source?]
