Yeah, right!

I almost couldn't believe it. Almost.

Apparently, there's a small town in Aomori prefecture, right at the Northern tip of Honshu, Japan's main island, which claims to be the final resting place of Jesus Christ. According to the local legend, for 11 years prior to the crucifixion Jesus lived and studied in Japan, after which he went back to the Middle East to preach about the wonders of this place. For such heresy, he was condemned to death but, thanks to a deft switcheroo, his little-known brother, Isukiri, got nailed up in his stead. Jesus then came back to Japan, settled down, had three kids, and died aged 106. This despite the generally inclement weather in the Aomori region.

And if Jesus were still alive today, a little short of his 2007th birthday, this is the kind of neighbour he'd have to contend with:

A firefighter was arrested Saturday on suspicion of driving under the influence and fleeing the scene of an accident after his car hit a signboard and a snow blower in Aomori, police said.

According to the police, Koji Shimanaka, 31, of Imabetsumachi, Aomori Prefecture, was driving under the influence at 2:45 a.m. Friday when his car collided with the signboard and a snow blower at the side of the road as he turned right at an intersection on a municipal road. Shimanaka then drove off, they said.

There is a Moses Grave in Ishikawa Pref. Shinjirareru?
One Google search later... yes, I do!

Damn, and apparently Japanese pyramids pre-date those of Egypt and Mexico. The only reason they're not more famous is because they're not actually pyramid shaped.

However that works.
