Encore fumante, une nouvelle île découverte au Japon

Encore fumante, une nouvelle île découverte au Japon | Japan | Scoop.it

Une nouvelle petite île encore fumante a été découverte mercredi après-midi dans l'océan Pacifique à un millier de kilomètres au sud de Tokyo, selon d'étonnantes images diffusées par les autorités japonaises.

L'émergence de cet îlot de 200 mètres de diamètre est due à une intense activité volcanique.

Située au sud-sud-est de l'île volcanique inhabitée Nishinoshima du petit archipel Ogasawara, elle a été aperçue pour la première fois mercredi à 16h17 (heure locale) par un avion des garde-côtes.

«L'éruption volcanique se poursuit toujours», ont expliqué ces derniers qui ont filmé l'îlot.

C'est la première fois que cela se produit dans cette zone depuis 40 ans. En septembre 1973 était apparue une nouvelle île appelée Shinshima-Nishinoshima qui a en grande partie été mangée par les vagues depuis mais dont il reste encore un bout aujourd'hui.

Depuis 1945, fin de la Guerre du Pacifique, quatre ou cinq îles auraient de la sorte été découvertes, a expliqué un commandant des garde-côtes à la télévision Fuji TV.

Celle apparue ces derniers jours pourrait toutefois disparaître sous le niveau de la mer, indique la même source.

Les garde-côtes appellent néanmoins les bateaux à la prudence dans la région où l'activité volcanique risque de se poursuivre.

«Nous allons tout faire pour assurer la sécurité des navires et suivre attentivement l'activité volcanique», a commenté le porte-parole du gouvernement interrogé sur cette question durant son point de presse matinal quotidien.

Si elle ne disparaît pas sous les flots, «nos eaux territoriales vont s'étendre», a-t-il déclaré.

Ces mots sont d'autant moins neutres que le gouvernement japonais est très attaché à ses eaux territoriales qu'il protège jalousement tandis que les bateaux des garde-côtes chinois s'ingénient à tourner autour d'un autre petit archipel inhabité administré par le Japon, les îles Senkaku, mais revendiqué par Pékin sous l'appellation Diaoyu.

JAPAN: Kinki University fish lab opening Ginza eatery

JAPAN: Kinki University fish lab opening Ginza eatery | Japan | Scoop.it

A fisheries research lab at Kinki University in Wakayama Prefecture is poised to make a smashing debut in the heart of Japan’s gourmet capital: Ginza.

The private university will open a fish restaurant in the glitzy Tokyo district on Dec. 2, serving tuna, red sea bream and other kinds of fish, all cultivated at its fisheries lab in Wakayama.

The restaurant will be named Kindai Sotsu no Sakana to Kishu no Megumi — Kinki Daigaku Suisan Kenkyujo. This translates as Kinki University-bred Fish and Blessings of Kishu — Kinki University Fisheries Laboratory.

It will be the second restaurant opened by the university through A-Marine Kindai, a venture company it set up 2003. Another fish restaurant opened in April in Grand Front Osaka, a shopping and restaurant complex adjacent to JR Osaka Station. Customers form long lines daily at the popular Osaka eatery.

“We decided to open our second outlet in Ginza because it’s the center of Tokyo,” a university spokeswoman said. “We want to show ourselves to the world.”

Kinki University, known as Kindai, scored a world’s first in 2002 by cultivating Pacific bluefin tuna. It has a registered trademark for its tuna, called Kindai Maguro.

The Ginza establishment will also serve vegetables and other produce from Wakayama, the university said, noting that it hopes to use the restaurant for educational purposes as well, featuring tableware made by arts majors and menus developed by students studying nutrition.
