When you hear about a ghost ship, what do you think of? Do you remember that "Ghost Ship" movie way back in the early 2000s? Do you think of actual ghosts, spooky pirates, and a ship that looks like a skull from afar?
Well, we really do have ghost ships, but they don't contain anything really supernatural. They are deemed as ghost ships simply because either no one is on the ship, or the people inside are dead and yet the ship is still on the high seas. The following images show several ghost ships appearing near the land of Japan, and no one really knows why they came to be that way.
Japan has already begun a series of investigations to find out why these ships suddenly appeared in the country and why 20 dead people were found inside. Worst, these bodies were severely decomposed.
In early November, four of the ghost ships were found. Recently, more ships were discovered and brought the total to 11 ghost ships.
One of the conspiracy theories spreading around the internet is that the sailors were trying to get away North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un. A material was found that seemed to be part of the North Korean flag, and one of the ships had a lettering that said "Korean People's Army".
Some people believe that the ghost ships are actually just fishing vessels from North Korea, as the infamous nation has begun to improve its fishing industry.
The most recent ghost ship discovered was located 250 miles north of Tokyo, specifically just off the coast of Fukui.
Since the ships weren't that advanced at all, it was believed that they were not made by any Western country.
The ghost ships contained various fishing tools such as cords, nets, and fishing hooks.
