Gunkanjima: UNESCO World Heritage (Flickr Explore #321)
Gunkanjima has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The tiny island city, also known as Hashima Island or Battleship Island, has been abandoned for 40 years.
I was fortunate to be one of a handful of foreigners to covertly gain access to the off-limits areas of the island with the help of a few trusted Japanese urban explorers. I was able to explore the island in 2011 and 2014.
