Hashima aka Gunkanjima: Photos of desolate Battleship Island off the coast of Japan

Visitors to this abandoned settlement could be forgiven for thinking they had entered a long-forgotten war zone. However, this is Gunkanjima - Japan's rotting metropolis. And it has been described as the most desolate place on Earth. Gunkanjima is a deserted island of concrete that is slowly crumbling away on Japan's west coast. Meaning 'Battleship Island' in English, Gunkanjima's real name is Hashima and it is one of 505 uninhabited islands in the Nagasaki Prefecture, about 15 kilometres from Nagasaki itself.

They have all this fun stuff to do and the trailers are to die for. I'm staying in The Sweet but I am kind of wishing I stayed in The Fifi now. It has glowing wig heads! The other themed trailers they have are called The Pioneer(western themed), The Integratrailor(alien themed), The Lux (The Cramps themed), The Sweet(70's themed), The Pony(which is in a stall) and The New World(they edit films in there).
