It makes you wonder what might be berried underneath the ground right here in Tokyo.

Yes, although, if archaeologist in Tokyo announced that mummy factory was believed to have been built under Ginza two thousand years ago.

Ministry of Antiquities official say The mummification workshop and communal burial shafts date back more than 2,400 years.
Some of the shafts are about 30 meters deep. The officials say a team of scientists from Egypt and Germany found 35 mummies, including one wearing a rare silver mask. The team also found a chamber believed to have been used to embalm and wrap mummies before burial.
“We are standing before a gold mine of information,” the head of the team told a news conference.
The archeologists found bowls and measuring cups, from which oil and resin were detected. They believe chemical analysis should shed more light on how mummies were prepared.
