Message in a bottle washes up in Hawaii 37 years later
A glass bottle containing a message that was sent from high school students in Japan has ben found on an Hawaiian island nearly 6000km away, according to a report in a Japanese newspaper.
A nine-year-old girl from Hawaii found the bottle on a rocky beach.
Inside were contact forms in Japanese, English and Portuguese explaining it was released off the coast of Choshi and asking the discoverer to contact the owner.
The Japanese high school's natural science club released the bottles into the sea in 1984 and 1985 to investigate the Kuroshio Current.
