An anchor belonging to a Mongolian ship, part of a fleet attempting to invade Japan in 1281, was recovered from the sea floor off the coast of Nagasaki last week. Meanwhile the composer and pianist Toshi Ichiyanagi passed away aged 89. He was crucial part of the postwar Japanese avant-garde and worked in theatre and film with the likes of painter Jasper Johns, choreographer Merce Cunningham, Toshio Matsumoto and Yoko Ono to name but a few.
