self-imposed isolation of Edo period from 1641 until 1853. The Dutch East India Company’s trading

post at Dejima was closed in 1857. Since then, the island has been surrounded by reclaimed land

and merged into Nagasaki:  its original location is marked by rivets.

Hashima Coal Mine  /  Gunkan-jima island cruise

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 of a battleship.
