This is a must if you are in or close to Nagasaki. The island has an eerie post-apocalyptic wasteland like presence to it and is like nothing we have ever seen or experienced before. It makes for some interesting photos and is rated as one of the creepiest places on earth. This tour was certainly the highlight of Nagasaki for... More

I stopped into the Gunkanjima Concierge office during non-business hours and was met by Sato who welcomed me inside. He spoke very good English and was able to tell me about the tour/boat to Gunkanjima. I booked a spot on the afternoon boat (good thing as it was full). I was given an audio guide in English which worked out... More

The company scale is not so big. But they offers very good "hand-made" services to treat you. Only problem was that their lobby was too small therefore it was a bit tough to wait outside under the strong sunlight. When you take a cruiser, I recommend to sit the left side, so that you can see the Battleship island better,... More

this is not an island abandoned coz of a war or nuclear or natural disaster but the feeling of being in a ghost town is amaaaazing... its like the end of the world ! also its the place where the movie 007 skyfall was inspired !

Inspired by 007’s “Skyfall” movie, we made our way south from Fukuoka to Nagasaki. The 2-hour train journey was on the limited express. After a brief stop to see the Atomic Bomb Museum, we took a cab to Gunkanjima Conceirge; Which is one of the tour operators to Gunkanjima. However, if you are expecting a walking tour similar to Alcatraz,... More

After reading some recent reviews I can report that the boat cruise will run in heavy rain and light wind. We landed on the eerie, bleek and incredible Hashima Island (commonly known as Gunkanjima) in the pouring rain. Far from dampening our spirits I must say that the rain certainly added to the overall ambience from our perspective.. This place... More

I visited Gunkanjima with the Gunkanjima Concierge service in early February 2014. I had a great experience and will go again, time and (especially) weather permitting. The ride out was pleasant the day I went. Once in the vicinity of the island, the boat cruises around the island and allows photographers to take some shots from the side and the... More

Really good value tour, they took us out to the island on the boat then landed (you may not land if the weather is very bad) and walked around with an English audio tour on headsets. The staff were very friendly and kept checking the headsets were working. They also handed out warm coats for the trip out as we... More

I really enjoyed this tour. There are English audio guides available; unfortunately we didn't discover until the cruise was underway that my husband's didn't work. The staff is really helpful and they do sell wristbands for motion sickness for 500 yen on board but I would recommend taking something for motion sickness before you leave the port. It was very,...

After the 50 minute cruise taking in the various industrial sites of Nagasaki we landed on Hashima. The tour follows a set route along the outside of the island and is very limited. I can understand from a safety pint of view why they must be so strict but to have such a wonderful playground so close was agony. Tour... More
