Kyushu Travel Guide

Gunkan-jima island Cruise


Hashima Coal Mine / Gunkan-jima Island

The cruise ship take you exploring Tachibana bay from Nagasaki port and landing on Gunkan-jima island.


Hashima coal mining island is an artificial reclaimed island and the site of Japan’s first major

undersea coal exploitation (1890) pioneered by Mitsubishi – and host to one of the world’s

most extraordinary former mining communities. Hashima Island is located 3 km southwest of Takashima,

and it was the success of Takashima that led Mitsubishi to purchase this island – both islands giving access

to the same undersea coal deposit.

Now Hashima is a ruin called “Gunkanjima”, so called after its resemblance to the silhouette.
