Mysterious “Crop Circle” Forest in Japan is the Result of a 50-Year-Old Experiment

A forest in Japan has actually managed to garner quite a lot of attention because of how strangely shaped it turns out to be. To be precise, in the Miyazaki Prefecture of southern Japan, as you can tell from the pictures, crop circles suddenly formed out of the many different groups of Japanese cedar trees.

These concentric circles left people completely baffled as to how this could have occurred in the first place.

But don’t worry, this is not an alien construction in the slightest, it is all just the well-planned out experiment that was officially started around 50 years ago by the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries.

Originally created to be an “experimental forestry” of some kind, thanks to Google Earth we can observe what appears to be trees planted in 10-degree radial increments to form 10 concentric circles.

You can see the result yourself if you wish to. Many immediately jumped the bandwagon hoping that this was yet another proof of aliens and their messages to outer space but no, it was just humanity at its best.

Oftentimes referred to as the Japanese Crop Circles, this is definitely a discovery that deserves a second look.
