During World War Two, the Japanese moved the training facility for their torpedo boats (Manned mini submarines used to ram ships) from Yokosuka, Japan to Kawatana, near Nagasaki. There are still remains of buildings from that time. Great photo opportunities on land, but not much going on under the surface that we could find. Also, visibility is poor.
