Japanese Ghost Island – Gunkanjima

There’s a ghost island in Japan.  It’s called Gunkanjima – have you heard of it?  I read something about it on the weather site, and when I googled, I lucked into finding the blog I’m showing you which is brilliant and the photographs are tremendous.


Apparently there was ample coal to mine once upon a time, but when things changed and coal wasn’t so sought after, everyone abandoned the island in what seems like a day or two.


These images are spooky and beautiful.  I advise you to check out the entire site!
