A tourist boat that went missing six days ago with 26 people aboard was found on the seabed off Hokkaido on Friday, the Japan Coast Guard (JCG) said.

The 19-ton Kazu I was located after the Maritime Self-Defense Force conducted a search with an underwater camera off Hokkaido's Shiretoko Peninsula. The name "Kazu I" was confirmed on the hull of the boat, the JCG said.
