A container that was apparently swept away from Miyagi Prefecture by the March 2011 tsunami has been found on a British Columbia island, and inside it contained a Harley-Davidson.

The motorcycle, found in the container by a local resident, bears a license plate showing it registered in Miyagi Prefecture, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. said Monday. The container may be the first debris from the disaster to arrive in Canada, the report added.
