There was a time when Hashima island, situated in the East China Sea in approximately 15 kilometers from Nagasaki-city, considered to be the most heavily populated location on the Earth – in 1959 within the coastline about a kilometer long its population made up 5259 people.  

They mainly were miners and workers of military plants built near the island’s mines. However, by 1974 all the natural resources exhausted and the island became abandoned. For a long time visits to Hashima were under a ban – in such a way Japanese government tried to secure it from treasure-hunters, as household items of dead city became haunting objects for rich collectors. Now visits are permitted, however tourists have access only to the specially prepared safe part of the island.
