There is the so-called Pacific Bermuda Triangle - the Devil's Sea, also known as the Dragon Triangle - located in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Japan. It covers a large area of the Philippine Sea and the triangle between Japan and the Bonin Islands.

This area is centered on the Japanese island of Miyake, which is located about 100 kilometres south of Tokyo. Its paranormal phenomena are associated with its opposite position from the Bermuda Triangle, TheScienceTimes writes.

Due to the many superstitions associated with the area, the Japanese have discouraged exploration of this part of the ocean for generations due to beliefs associated with the Devil's Sea. The region has been in the headlines for decades due to mysterious ship disappearances. Rumor has it that even the most powerful ships can disappear in the waters of the triangle, taking their crew members with them.

According to reports, after several disasters in the area, the Japanese government has recognized the region as dangerous for maritime transportation and cargo. In addition, all attempts to solve the mystery have been completely suspended due to the extraordinary events.

At the same time, various theories, including scientific explanations, were used to solve the mystery. Experts have suggested that hot and cold currents passing through this dangerous whirlpool cause ships to disappear in the Devil's Sea. Moreover, ships passing by could have become entangled in the electromagnetic interference caused by these currents.

Another opinion was that the ships disappeared because of underground volcanoes in the area. These accidents could have been caused by the eruptions of these volcanoes, confirming stories of dragons that sucked ships and their men to the ocean floor. Marine experts say that due to underwater volcanoes and seismic activity, islands in this region often suddenly disappear and new ones appear at the same time.

According to another scientific study, the unexplained phenomena in the triangle are caused by specific environmental. According to the researchers, the seabed in the area probably contains methane hydrates. Bubbles form on the water's surface when methane hydrate or methane clathrates explode because ice-like deposits separate from the ocean floor at the time of the explosion. These actions can destroy a vessel without leaving any trace, as well as disrupt buoyancy.
