GUNKANJIMA

It appeared recently in the James Bond movie “Skyfall” 

It used to be a coal mining facility surrounded by a monstrous but very lively maze of huge buildings. In the 60′s, it was the most densely populated metropolis on earth, which is an amazing fact considering that it is just a tiny island!

ISLAND SIZE: 61,000 m2 
MAX POP.: 5,259 people 
DENSITY: 83,500 people / km2 
BUSINESS STARTED: 1890 
FIRST BUILDING: 1916 
BUSINESS ENDED: 1974

Everything can be found in that abandoned city: schools, shops, an hospital, clubs, pools, a gymnasium… It is hard to believe that it is truly real until we see it with our own eyes. A post-apocalyptic overview of our future, yet a remain of the past

Abandoned in 1974, the Battleship Island – Gunkanjima – turned into the Ghost Island and soon became one of the most famous spot for urban exploration.
