  • This is the meeting place for the tour. There was an explanation before landing, but after landing and coming back, there was a sense of realism, and it was fun. There are some islands that you can't enter, but here you can also experience the scenery around them. It might feel expensive only here.

  • I stopped by before the warship island tour. There were several horoscopes, but it was written that "it might make you feel sick", so I didn't use it.

  • The receptionist was surprised at the receptionist's handling and customer service was too poor. I ignored my aunt's face at the automatic door at the entrance. It seems not to be able to use it if it does not say to the person in charge though there is no voice so as to think where it enters and it is a receptionist, and it becomes sleepy because it is good to see the image because it is dark, and it is not height though it might be only on the building structure. I wonder how to use the door of the emergency exit as a screen.

  • Good place to know more about the history of the Gunkanjima Island. But it does not entirely cover the island’s history, for example the forced labor which occurred on the island.
  • What a fantastic museum, so many interactive and informative displays and experiences, from specially lit models and video to VR tours of the island. The staff were very attentive and helpful, even for an English speaker. One of the presenters who does a video based wall screen presentations actually grew up on the island, so it was great to hear it first hand.
  • We weren't planning on visiting the museum but had free tickets after we couldn't land on the island due to the weather. The museum is very informative and the VR experience is great.
  • Not much to see and expensive. Mostly some videos on a large screen about the history of the island and some VR stations where you can do a "walkthrough" of different parts of island. Not many actual artifacts to look at. A small "museum".
  • An amazing place to learn about life on Gunkanjima. It mostly touches on post WW2 Gunkanjima, but they have a VR area so you can walk through the old collapsing buildings without the danger (actually you can't go into those areas on the island anyway). There is also a gentleman who works at the museum who was born and lived on the island for a short while before it was abandoned.
