THE SEARCH BEGINS!

Catch LIVE coverage from a deep-sea robot in
search of the lost imperial submarine, I-58!


<I-58 Exterior>

24 imperial submarines slumber along the ocean seabed of the Goto Islands
(Nagasaki); they have rested here, undisturbed, ever since their disposal by
American forces during World War II.

Since 2015 with the discovery of relics from vessels in these waters, only one vessel,
submarine I-402 has been identified; the rest still lie in obscurity.


<I-58 bridge>

Strong evidence indicates that I-58 (known to have carried Kaiten or manned torpedoes) is
among those vessels yet to be identified.

I-58 is best remembered for the sinking of the American cruiser “Indianapolis” (the cruiser
responsible for carrying the atomic bombs which were subsequently dropped on Hiroshima
and Nagasaki).

This program will feature LIVE footage from an underwater robot being used to search for
I-58 around the Goto Islands.

Message from Lap Longe Association and Tamaki Ura
The real-time underwater footage shown is this program would not have been possible without the help of our
on-hand ocean specialists and deep-sea divers. Through
the joint partnership with NICT and Dwango Co., ltd, we
have been able to show you this underwater footage from our sunken vessel investigations. We believe that this will mark a new period in the search for sunken vessels such as I-58 and R-50.
