Floating in the sea like the reflection of a world after the extinction of the human race The desolation is astounding

  • In Nagasaki Prefecture, there is an artificially created, uninhabited island known as Gunkanjima (Battleship Island).
    There were once 5,000 people living on the island in a town famous for having the highest population density in the world, but the decline of the coal mining industry led to accelerating depopulation, and it has been uninhabited for over 40 years.
    Take a look at this island, which has retained the forms of its gigantic buildings even as it has decayed and undergone a transformation.
