The deserted island of Gunkanjima was a coal mining colony based on an island roughly the size of a football field. This was the most densely populated place on earth before Mitsubishi, the company who owned the island, closed the operation in 1974. Upon closing they offered the population to apply for jobs on the mainland, leading to a mass-exodus within only a few days on closing its mines. The island was left as if a neutron bomb had gone through it, with people’s breakfasts remaining on the tables, bicycles leaning on the walls, and beds still unmade. It is a harrowing place.
