According to Japanese folk tale, extraterrestrials visited planet Earth in the 19th century. Many stories and theories have been telling that aliens have been visiting Earth secretly for many centuries now. However, this particular folktale from Japan, which believed to happen in the early 1800s, continues to inspire many UFO enthusiasts and believers.
Reportedly written in 1825, the story starts with the discovery of a very unusual vessel floating in the ocean by Japanese sailors. Described by the sailors as a circular object, it appeared to have a lid covering the top of the ship with glass windows. When the very strange vessel got to shore, a gorgeous woman came out with bright red hair, holding an unknown box.
The woman would not allow anyone to touch it. Furthermore, the Japanese sailors can’t talk about it because the woman did not speak any known language. Also, unknown to them were the materials of the ship, clothes of a woman, and her box.
Because of fear, the villagers pushed the woman and her vessel into the sea again.
This story has been one of the most favorites among UFOlogists. The possibility of a flying saucer crashed in the sea that eventually washed up on land has given Ufologists the reason to believe the story.
Some speculates that aliens were attempting to blend in by matching technology on Earth, sending spacecraft when mankind could fly, and foreign vessels when all humans could do was sail. When skeptics argue, the UFO believers will point to the strange substances of the woman’s clothes and ship.
UFO believers claim that people during that time were not naïve or dumb not to recognize materials or vessels normally found on Earth. They believe that the foreign woman might have crashed or have been on a scouting ship.
