Remains of ancient artificial pond found in Japan

The remains of an artificial pond dating back to the 8-9th century has been found in Japan’s Miyagi Prefecture.

The Mainichi Daily News said Sunday the artificial pond was part of an ornamental garden in the city of Tagajo amid the ruins of Taga Castle, which once served as the capital of Japan’s Tohoku region.

Archaeologists said the pond was created by a wood and stone dike and measures 426 feet by 328 feet.
