Do you know the Ghost Island?

The name itself is scary-right? The Ghost Island is an uninhabited island near Nagasaki, Japan. The actual name of the island is Gunkanjima.


But the island was once populated; from 1887 to 1974 by coal miners. The coal mine was operated by the Mitsubishi Company of Japan. But they closed the mines in 1974 and today, the island is empty.



Even, traveling to this island is prohibited for unknown reasons. This island that is located in the western coast of Japan is known only to a few Japanese.

This strange uninhabited island reminds me of all those stories that I read very long ago-you know, all those fantasies and sea voyages of the kings of yesteryears?
