No worries tour operator

Good enthousiastic people. Tour is very informative with pictures and english audio equipment. Maybe a bit more expensive as their competitors, but worth it.

With an english speaking guide it would have been very good. They do offer an english language audio guide, but the sound keeps cutting out (at least mine did). The tour itself is excellent - You get to se an otherwise inaccessible part of Japans modern history, presented by a former resident of the island. Tip: do take the rainponcho... More

First of all, if you want to do this trip with concierge or any of the other companies, book ahead. Since August 2015 Hashima is UNESCO World heritage and we were just really lucky to get 2 seats on the boat. It's not high season and we expected it to be no problem to get the tickets a couple of...

I made a reservation via their website a week before. The tour is a bit short, just half day. But worth going as the place is simply stunning. The staff told us landing may not be possible due to strong tides but at the end we made it. (They clarified that refund for tickets and a discount for transport will... More

A great tour. Pricy for travelers on a budget, but definitely worth the money. The island itself is breathtaking, although they don't show visitors the whole structure. Gunkanjima Concierge makes the tour that much better by entertaining the visitors. The tour is in Japanese, but an audio tour in English is available.

The staff was helpful and knowledgeable. They quickly and safely ushered us off and on the boat, as well as entertained us on the return trip back. English audio earphones made this a more enjoyable experience as well. Our tour guide on the island was an ex resident there and offered to answer any questions about his experience there. The...

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
