Hashima Island, Nagasaki

(4.4/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Abandoned since 1974, the concrete blocks of buildings on Hashima Island, a World Heritage Site, stand as silent witnesses to the island’s unsettling history. Noted for its underwater coal mines, the tiny islet off the coast of Nagasaki was the site of a forced labor camp for Chinese POW’s and Korean civilians. They were residents of the now ruined apartment blocks, once the most densely populated space in the world. Take a guided tour of the ghost town surrounded by sea, and discover the remnants of the once bustling blocks, worn down by the harsh weather and forces of nature. See Hashima Island and all Nagasaki has to offer by arranging your trip with our Nagasaki itinerary builder.
