Rewarding day at this modern post apocalyptic site. Totally abandoned island which has been left to the elements since 1974. Amazing experiences here.

The trip is very organised , perhaps too organised. You are allowed to walk on one side of the island, on a wooden path and not distance yourself not even 2 m from group. So all the rest you have to leave for your imagination....

Hi, can anyone tell me whether there is a tour company that will allow a 3 year old on their tour of Hashima Island? The Gunkanjima concierge won't allow us to book with our 3 year old son. Thanks.

Hi you may want to check Yokoso-japan Tour. As in the detail section it says ( Infant Price - The same as adult/child participant) The tour code 93401 Hope you manage to find one that allows children on board. cheers Tina
