No one don't know what it is.
This is very famous in Japan.
Some theories exist.


1. Ancient ruins constructed in B.C 8000
If it is truth, this ruins would be the oldest all over the world.
Some say that this is ruins of MU empire..

2. ruins of ancient quarry

3. a natural phenomenon

4. ruins constructed in middle age


Do you think what it is ?

Tōjinbaka (唐人墓), Tōjin no haka stop on the Kabira Resort Line. This ornately decorated Chinese-style "Tang People's Grave" commemorates the sorry fate of some 400 Hokkien Chinese coolies, who mutinied and ran aground on Ishigaki on their way to California. Pursued by the English navy, those captured were killed, so many headed into the mountains where they starved or committed suicide, and only a lucky few were taken under the wing of friendly locals and protected

The seabed contains what appear to be ruins of a previous glacial age and traces of terrestrial flora, fauna and stalactites that form only on the surface. These suggest that these ruins might be more than 3,000 to 10,000 years old, which would make them the world's oldest.
