Must read

A glass bottle that was thrown into the sea 37 years ago by high school students in Japan was found on the island of Hawaii, some 6,000 kilometers away.

Students from the natural science club at Choshi High School in eastern Chiba prefecture released the bottle in 1984 as part of a project to investigate ocean currents. The Japanese newspaper Mainichi reported.

In all, 750 bottles were placed in the ocean near Tokyo’s Miyakejima Island in 1984 and 1985.

The most recent was found in 2002 on Kikaijima Island, in Kagoshima prefecture, in southwestern Japan. Then in June, nine-year-old Abbie Graham i found the bottle on a rocky beach in Hawaiian Paradise Park. Inside were contact forms in Japanese, English and Portuguese explaining that it had been posted off the coast of Choshi and asking the seeker to contact the school.

Abbie sent the contact forms to Choshi High School, along with a picture of her and her sister eating sushi, in early September.

Deputy Director Jun Hayashi said in a briefing on September 15: “We think the last one was found in Kikaijima. We never imagined that another would be found 37 years later. “

Since 1985, the bottles released by the school have been found in 17 locations, including Okinawa, the Philippines, China, and the US West Coast..

Mayumi Kanda, 54, a member of the natural science club in 1984, said: “It shocked me, it revived the nostalgic memories of my high school days. I thank those involved. “

Abbie also enjoyed the experience. She told the Hawaii Tribune-Herald: “I want to go find another one.”
