A boat that washed up on a Washington State beach has been confirmed as debris from last year's Japanese tsunami.

The Japanese Consulate in Seattle located the owner of the boat in Japan and the owner says they don't want it back.

State workers have steam-cleaned the boat and determined it to be free of invasive species and plan to put the boat on display at a local park.
