  Kaiko - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kaiko was a remote control Japanese deep-sea submarine that sampled bacteria from the ocean floor of the Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench, the deepest location in the world.
On March 2, 1996, Kaiko reached a depth of 10,897 m, marking the deepest dive for an unmanned submersible on record (the Bathyscaphe Trieste holds even today the record for deepest manned dive, made in 1960).
Kaiko was lost during a typhoon in May 2003, when a secondary cable connecting it to the surface broke.

 The Underwater Wonders Revealed by Kaiko
Kaiko entered the record books in 1995 when it dived almost 11,000 meters to the bottom of Challenger Deep -- the world's deepest stretch of ocean -- in the Maruyama Trench, near Guam, in the western Pacific.
Kaiko dives also collected detailed photos of the topography of the seabed, notably details of shifts of tectonic plates and faults, that are expected to contribute significantly to understanding how earthquakes occur, say the scientists involved in the project.
During its useful life, Kaiko contributed to solving some of the oceans puzzles, such as how life is able to proliferate in the harsh conditions of high pressure, low temperatures and lack of sunlight.

Kaiko is the operculum of a Sea Snail.
I believe it would be an error to relate Kaiko to the Hebrew incense "Onycha." This would be merely "curious speculation" based on a possible similar use of operculum.
From this mistaken correlation, comes the notion that Kaiko was a fragrant ingredient in Japanese incense, which is not supported by the old Japanese texts discussing it's preparation, or consistent which what is used by Japanese incense companies using the ingredient today.

 Pre-war Japanese American Haiku
Kaiko, the modern, free-style haiko, was developed by the Tokyo poets Ippekiro Nakatsuka and Kawahigashi Hekigodo in 1915.
His love for the crimson-colored flowers was used to illustrate his intense abstract feeling, and was used for the cover of his monthly haiku magazine to advocate the revolutionary new style haiku.
The passing of the once energetic free-style Kaiko groups, especially the Delta Ginsha Haiku Kai and the Valley Ginsha Haiku Kai (which had been known for their international flavor and capable women poets), was a tragedy to the ethnic Japanese communities.
