Mount Suribashi's awakening ; tremors have lifted the seabed and brought up these Japanese wrecks.

I think the article is full of small errors. If these ships were deliberately sunk to make a breakwater by the US, I doubt they were Japanese ships. Much like what was done elsewhere, they were probably older merchant ships or even possibly Liberty Ships. I do find it interesting that the sea floor is rising.
