Report - Japanese mining town, empty since the 1970s

    The town housed around 3,000 people at its peak, but judging by calenders found in the place, it was abandoned in the early to mid 1970s. A few buildings have sadly been demolished, and one are two are on their last legs, but there's thankfully still a lot to see.

    I was planning on visiting Japon this year to visit Gunkanjima this year but alas, no luck. Maybe 2009 will be more fruitful.

    The extremely high levels of radiation may have played an incy wincy part too.

    Thanks for the nice comments. Glad you liked the pics.

    Admittedly though the place is so fantastic that it's hard not to take half decent pictures. Just wish there were more sites like this around the Tokyo area.

    Oh, and while I'm no medical expert, I'm pretty sure that is a brain in the jar. Can't think what else it can be. God knows what the other stuff in the jars is though...
