Known locally as Gunkanjima or Battleship Island, Hashima was once home to a bustling coal mining town. As demand shifted from coal to petroleum, the island was abandoned, and has been uninhabited since 1974! These modern ruins and testament to nature's power stand as both a living part of recent history and an overwhelming monument to time. The island's legacy is still felt, and directly inspires movies, such as the recent Bond film Skyfall!
