The Fujikawa Maru is one of the most spectacularly beautiful shipwrecks in Truk Lagoon. Truk (Chuuk) is in the Federated States of Micronesia in the western Pacific. It was the scene of a World War II battle between the Allies and Japan. Operation Hailstone sent some 40 Japanese merchant ships (maru) to watery graves in the shallow lagoon.
