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!
