Ghost city of Gukanjima

Gukanjima is an island near the westernmost shore of Japan.

It is an island built upon a reef in the early 19th century because of a coal mine in the reefs and quickly became a densely populated island 1 km in diameter and 5300 people living packed together, working the mines.

.. no one lives there now.

Some neat photos, this would be a great place to explore....
