Coincidence: 34° 33’North Latitude

A kofun trivia

Some ten kilometers lie between Ojin-tenno-ryo Kofun (Burial mound of the Emperor Ojin) and Nintoku-tenno-ryo Kofun (Burial mound of the Emperor Nintoku), but they are both situated at 34° 33’N. At the same latitude, we see the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor, the north end of the Taxila ruins, the land of the ancient kingdom of Israel in the far west; and in the east, we see Roswell in the U.S., where some still believe UFOs crashed; and in Japan, we come across the original site of the Ise shrine… Is this sheer coincidence? What do you find at 34° 33’N in your vicinity?
