Japan post WWII Dumps TONS of TOXIC CHEMICALS in PACIFIC OCEAN, LAKES, RIVERS!!!!
The Japanese government has reported that 44 chemical weapon dumping sites exist inside and offshore the current Japanese territory. However, the government is concerned that there could be more dumpsites, up to 138, including 29 in water -- the ocean, rivers and lakes -- which could STILL pose health risks. The five major types of chemical weapons produced by the Japanese Army before the Second World War were Mustard, Lewisite, Hydrogen Cyanide, DA and DC.
Toxic liquid: 1,845 tonnes, which was directly sent to ships by using long pipe. Toxic liquid can: 930 tonnes
Vomiting (Sneezing) agents: 990 tonnes
Riot control agents: 7 tonnes
60 kg toxic gas projectiles: 13,272
10 kg toxic gas projectiles: 3,0366, 616 tons of chemical weapons were produced in Ohkuno-island alone!
Most of the chemical weapons were dumped by either the Japanese Army or the Allied Forces mainly under the command of the U.S. between 1945 and 1948. In other words, massive amounts of chemical weapons were dumped in a relatively short period around the end of World War II.
After the Japanese government accepted the unconditional surrender on 15th August, 1945, most of the unused chemical weapons were incinerated and dumped in the ocean, or directly dumped in the ocean mainly under the command of the U.S. Army. Some weapons, however, were dumped by the Japanese Army during and right after the end of WWII. This is because sea-dumping was regarded as one of the safest methods to dispose of chemical weapons, especially for human health.
Table 2 lists some locations of the major sea-dumped Japanese chemical weapons, not including bullets filled with chemicals, ordered to be disposed of by several countries.

SINKING SHIPS
7,240 Japanese commercial ships alone were sunk -- most of them in the Pacific Ocean. In the South Pacific 3,800 vessels were sunk, over 85% of them under the Japanese flag.
