Takeharu Mikami who is also the editor-in-chief of Mu magazine said his researchers have so far registered 452 UFO-like sightings in the region's Linomachi district- an area known for UFO encounters.
He said that 125 of them can be backed by photos, and 24 others by videos.
“It is not a bird; it is likely a UFO,” commenting on one of the pictures released to the public.
The UFO lab opened in Iino Fukushima Prefecture in Japan last year, to "strive to unravel the enigma of these flying objects," according to a report by local news outlet the Mainichi.
Director Mikami was quoted stating at the time: "Until now, even if UFOs were discovered, the information was shared only on an individual level.
"I hope the research lab will serve as a base receiving information, and lead to new discoveries.
"I'd like to get to the bottom of their identity."
The nearby UFO Fureaikan Museum has a collection of around 3,000 documents and other materials.
