A Fleet of eleven ghost ships have washed up on the coast of Japan. No, this is not the plot of a new horror film, eleven REAL ghost ships mysteriously appeared on Japan’s coast yesterday (November 28th), carrying the remains of of twenty-three sailors, like a scene out of the 2002 film Ghost Ship or the horror film The Fog. The bodies of the sailors are so badly decomposed that they are unidentifiable and have been described as skeletons.

The only clues to the ship’s origins are a piece of flag in one ship, identified as a North Korea flag and a sign on one ship saying “Korean People’s Army”. The fact that ships appeared all at once would give the impression that they all set sail at the same time, but showing up the way they did is a little creepy.


Rescue teams said the remains were "badly decomposed" and almost "skeleton-like", reports Japan's public broadcaster NHK. Eleven mysterious 'ghost ships' have been discovered off the coast of Japan with over 20 skeletons on board. And the riddle baffled the country's coastguard teams who have no idea how they got there. Four wooden boats first washed up in early November, followed by seven more this week spotted drifting in the Sea of Japan. Only this time, rescuers were horrified to see the rotting remains of more than a dozen sailors. The latest boat, containing three bodies, was spotted on Tuesday off the coast of Fukui port - some 250 miles north of Tokyo.
