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.

Some buildings seemed to decay and break down, and it was impressive to be told that the warship island that we see the next time we come was different from today. It is a place that I want to visit again someday.
Solo con imaginar cómo estaban aglutinados los trabajadores da pavor. Era una antigua mina con sus casas de obreros. Esta abogada. No dejan pasear por seguridad. No hay excursión en castellano. more »Just by imagining how the workers were agglutinated. It was an old mine with its workers' houses. This lawyer. They don't let you walk through safety. There is no excursion in Spanish.
YouTube brought me here. The abandoned Starbucks brought tears to my eyes. The green marque now fading like hot steam rising above the goats milk froth from a creamy triple mocha doodle.
I liked it because the way it looked and because of the history of the island made it so much more unique and interesting.
