Reports on Underground Entrances
Level 1: Shun Akiba
Shun Akiba, once one of Japan’s more respected journalists, now finds himself on some kind of invisible blacklist. His book - ''Teito Tokyo Kakusareta Chikamono Himitsu'' - Imperial City Tokyo : Secret of a Hidden Underground Network, published in 2002 is the reason.
Shun claims to have evidence of a network of tunnels and possibly an underground city beneath Tokyo that the public is totally unaware of. It all began when Shun compared an old, discarded map of the Japanese underground system with a current map and found a discrepancy in the direction of two tunnels. He set out to find out the reason and realized this inconsistency is just the first of many differences he unearthed.
The bulk of Shun's book covers the development of the subway system and questions the many inconsistencies between maps of the past and present--even those that were contemporaneous. According to Shun, ''Even Allowing for errors, there are too many oddities.''
''Every city with a historic subterranean transport system has secrets.'' He says. ''In London, for example, some lines are near the surface and others very deep, for no obvious reason. Tokyo is said to have 12 subways and 250 km of tunneling. I'd say that last figure is closer to 2,000 km.''
Whether these omissions and irregularities are because of military, transit or other issues, no one is saying and Shun continues to search for clues.
Level 2: Strange Theories, Stranger Encounters
Richard Shaver isn’t the only person to claim they have proof of underground cities and beings. People far more respected have made similar claims as well, including: Jules Verne, Edgar Allan Poe, 17th century English astronomer Edmund Halley and others wrote about how planet Earth is a hollow sphere.
American authorities had prepared a special scientific mission in 18th and 19th centuries to explore the Earth's hollow depth.
The Nazis were very interested in the mysterious underground world. A top secret expedition was organized in 1942. Unfortunately, the outcome of the intrigue is not known.
In 1963, two American coal miners found a large door in a tunnel, behind which they discovered a marble stairway. An English miner claims that he found a stairway to an underground well. A sound of machines became distinct from behind the well the closer he got, and he fled in fear. When he returned to the tunnel, there were no stairs and no entrance to the well.
In the late 1970’s, an American satellite took very interesting photographs depicting a dark, regularly shaped spot on the North Pole. Similar pictures depicting the same dark spot on the pole were taken several years later.
During the exploration of a cave in Idaho. Anthropologist James McKenna and other members of the expedition could hear screams as they were moving hundreds meters deep into the cave. As they continued to explore, the researchers found human skeletons but they had to stop their quest: the smell of brimstone was unbearable.
Level 3: The Shaver Theory
Few people today remember Richard Shaver. In the late forties, though, Shaver created a stir with a story printed in Amazing Stories magazine. He claimed our world was honeycombed with huge underground caverns built long ago by aliens from another galaxy. When these beings fled to escape the radiation of our aging sun, their castoffs degenerated into evil dwarves Shaver called ''dero'' short for detrimental robots.
These Dero still lived in the cave cities, according to Shaver, kidnapping surface-dwelling people for meat and using the fantastic ''ray''machines that the great ancient races left behind to project tormenting thoughts and voices into our minds. Shaver insisted he'd visited these primeval caverns, and poured forth his exploits and assertions in a stream of stories and articles. Between 1945 and 1949, letters poured in attesting to the truth of Shaver's claims (tens of thousands of letters, according to Amazing Stories editor Ray Palmer) : the correspondents, too, had heard strange voices or encountered denizens of the hollow Earth. But many in the community of science fiction fans publicly condemn the Shaver Mystery as ''the Shaver Hoax.''
