ReleaseFebruary 26, 2018

Currently standing in ruins, this island used to be very active with the development of its seabed coal mine until the mid-20th century. It has been registered as a World Heritage Site. With the view of its group of high-rise buildings, it is commonly called Gunkanjima (battleship island). It is a model of an isolated island that appeared in the movie “007 Skyfall.” You can join a tour that lands on the island by taking a cruise boat from Nagasaki Port (Reservation required. The tour may be canceled due to unsuitable conditions such as bad weather).
