Gunkanjima • 軍艦島 • Hashima Island • Battleship Island
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.
