The History of the Rule of Law at Sea

On December 22, 2001, a spy ship incident occurred off the southwestern coast of Kyushu, which was later named the “Spy Ship Incident in the Southwest Sea of Kyushu.”
The incident stunned Japan by exposing the fact that armed spy ships were lurking in the waters around Japan.
This 40-minute video will go over the Japan Coast Guard’s response, the salvage of the spy ship that self-destructed and sank, the various facts uncovered about the ship, and how it came to be unveiled to the public and ultimately exhibited at the Japan Coast Guard Museum Yokohama. (English subtitles available.)

The gallery has photos of  the actual spy ship; over 90 pieces of material related to the incident, including a small boat hidden inside the ship; equipment from the Japan Coast Guard Patrol Vessel AMAMI, which took many shots from the spy ship; weapons fired at the JCG Patrol Vessels; and an underwater scooter thought to be used by the agents for landing and transportation.
