On August 4, an area of sugarcane more than a dozen meters across was mysteriously flattened in a field behind a kamiasagi, or sacred place, in the Sakiyama district of Nakijin.

During a work break, Takashi Azama, who was doing construction work nearby, found the spot that does not have any access to a road. Thick and strong sugarcane plants about two meters high were flattened in the same direction more than a dozen meters across at two separate locations, but it would seem that neither tractors nor humans have been there.

Nothing out of the ordinary was detected until the previous night so the sugarcane would appear to have been flattened some time during the night of August 3 and 4, but it is unclear whether or not this is someone’s handiwork or if it was caused by some kind of natural phenomenon. Azama suggested, “Maybe Godzilla stomped on them.”
