In the previous post, we covered how to interpret the meaning of some common sun markers used by the JIA (Japanese Imperial Army). So in this post, we are going to continue the discussion by presenting to you these additional sun markers.
But before we continue, let’s first discuss why the JIA had commonly used sun markers in hiding their Yamashita treasures.
Based on my own opinion, it has something to do with their belief which is called “Shintoism”. In this belief, the Japanese believe in many different gods and goddesses in which they refer to as “Kami”. But to all their gods and goddesses, only one of them stands great and known which is the “Sun goddess” named “Amaterasu”. Thus, when it comes to the Japanese, the sun as a symbol has a very important meaning to them.
When it comes to marking the hidden Yamashita treasures, the sun markers have a very interesting meaning. One of its interesting meanings is that it provides a clue about the value of the treasure which is a “Large Volume” of treasure deposit.
Another interesting meaning of a sun marker is a confirmation that the item buried as treasure deposits are made of gold. But among the most interesting meanings of a sun marker is the confirmation of the hidden treasure’s deposit spot. It actually indicates that the treasure deposit is buried somewhere near the place where the sun marker is found. This means that you do not need to go any further from the place in searching for the hidden item.
When it comes to the distance and direction of the sun marker, we have already clearly explained this part in the previous post. So if you still have not read it then you should go and check it out.
In this marker, we notice that it has many dots inside the circle body of the sun. As a treasure hunter, we already know that when it comes to dots as symbols, they often have something to do with the hidden item. So in this marker, the dots indicate that the hidden item is composed of a large volume of treasure deposit. They also confirm that the treasures are made of gold.
To the amateurs, the dots don’t necessarily need to be exactly the same as this marker. The marker that you may find can have more or less numbers of dots but they still do have the same meaning.
Since that feature of this sun marker is a whole, it clearly illustrates the sun rising from the East. Other than this meaning, it also indicates a 9 spokes distance which has an equivalent of 33 feet distance. From this information, we can now determine the exact spot that you need to dig.
This marker is a simple one which consists of a circle symbol. Other than this, it has an arrow symbol on top of it pointing at an upward direction. What this arrow symbol indicates is that the sun is “ascending” which in other words, it is a sun rising up. Thus, it has a meaning indicating the East direction and of course the 9 spokes distance.
Here is the opposite version of the sun marker above. We can clearly see that the only difference is the location of the arrow symbol which is placed under. The reason why it is placed under is because it indicates that the sun is “descending” or the sun is going down. In other words, the sun is setting down. Thus, it has a meaning which refers to the West direction and just like the above marker is the 9 spokes distance.
This marker looks almost exactly the same in appearance as the other other markers above. But in this version, it has a much detailed illustration of the sun rising early in the morning. So when it comes to its meaning, it also refers to the East direction of the site.
Here is its opposite version which refers to the West direction of the site. If you notice, the only thing that changed on its features is the direction of the arrow symbol on its top portion.
If all of the sun markers above only have one arrow symbol on them, this marker has more than one. As you can see, the arrow symbols are all pointing outward the circle body of the sun. This indicates that the sun is brightly shining. In other words, this marker is referring to the East direction of the site where the sun rises in the morning.
In this sun marker, the arrow symbols are all pointing inward the circle body of the sun. This indicates that the sun is losing its brightness which only happens when the sun is finally setting down at noon or sunset. In other words, the sun setting down also refers to the West direction of the site.
You have probably noticed that sun markers consist of circular symbols as the main representation of the sun itself. But when it comes to this marker, it has a body that consists of a long line that goes around in a clockwise direction. The meaning of this sun marker indicates the East direction of the site.
On the other hand, if this long line goes around in a counter-clockwise direction then it indicates the West direction of the site.
In this sun marker, we can see that it has an arrow symbol inside its body. And we can clearly see that it is pointing at an upward direction. The main reason why this arrow symbol is pointing upward is that it indicates that the sun is going up. In short, it represents the sun rising up early in the morning. Thus, this sun marker is giving a clue about the East direction which is the same direction as the sunrise.
This is the opposite version of the sun marker above where the only difference is its arrow symbol pointing down. Since it is pointing down, it represents the sun setting down or the sunset. Thus, it gives a clue about the West direction of the site which is the same exact location where the sun sets down.
When it comes to the sun markers with half body, they clearly illustrate sunrise or sunset. This marker illustrates the sun rising up in the early morning.
This is the version of the sun setting down. We can notice that the difference between them is their spokes. The sun marker pertaining to the sunrise does have spokes while the other one pertaining to sunset does not have any.
And for our final sun marker, we can notice that it consists of organized spokes. They are properly arranged in two different directions which are horizontally and vertically. When it comes to its meaning, it indicates the East direction where the sun rises up in the morning.
Overall, what exactly do you notice about sun markers used by the JIA in marking their hidden Yamashita treasures?
You may notice that they do have different features but when it comes to their meanings, they are just exactly the same. First, they all indicate only two directions of the site which are the East where the sun rises up in the morning and the West where the sun sets down during noon.
Second, they all indicate that the treasure deposit is buried near on the site where there is no need to go any further. Aside from this, sun markers confirm that the treasure deposit are made of gold objects.
And third, the treasure deposit is buried within the distance of 9 spokes which has an equivalent of 33 feet distance.
