TOKYO (AP) — Coastguard officials raided the office of a Japanese tour boat operator on Monday as part of a criminal investigation into suspected professional negligence in the sinking of a ship carrying 26 people to a national park last month.

The tourist boat Kazu 1 began visiting Shiretoko National Park, northeast of Hokkaido, Japan’s northernmost main island, on April 23, despite rough sea forecasts and warnings from other tour operators . He made a distress call this afternoon saying he was sinking.
