Easter Island is famous for its huge stone statues. There are about 600 large stone statues on the island, called Moai. On the 26 day, Japanese media revealed that Easter Island once had the possibility of becoming Japans territory. This is recorded in Japanese diplomatic documents (illustrated by NHK news from Japan). According to the Japanese NHK news report, in 1930s, the Chilean government tried to sell Easter Island to the country in order to raise funds for the construction of the warship, and tried to try to explore whether it was intended to be purchased from the Japanese government. In 1937, a telegram sent by the Chilean Embassy in Japan revealed the matter, which was labeled top secret by Japan, in which the Chilean government asked Japan whether it was interested (buying Easter Island). Reference materials for Easter Island (Fig. NHK news from Japan) Reported that the diplomatic cable also attached to the Easter Island reference materials, such as outline and map. Moreover, the Japanese government also discussed the matter with the Japanese Navy and Fisheries related enterprises. According to records, the Japanese Navy has replied that although Easter Island has no much value in the military, but if the air traffic is developed in the future, it can be used as a route. The report also said that because the Japanese government was informed that the Chilean government had also inquired about the matter in the United States and the United Kingdom, it had not made up its mind to buy it at last. However, Easter Island is now well known. If Japan first bought it, it could not imagine what it would be like now.
