Hashima is also known as “Battleship Island” because of its unique shape. It used to be a coal mining facility that operated from 1887 till 1974. Then it was shut down. The mines are now bare and empty. That’s why the island is given a new nickname “Ghost Island”.

A former coal mining facility owned by Mitsubishi Motors, it was once the most densely populated place on earth, packing over 13,000 people into each square kilometre of its residential high-risers
