Due to the strong typhoon a couple of months ago, no landing is allowed. I paid about 3500 yen (4000 yen originally, but they returned the 500 yen because we could not land). The tour was like less than 3 hours, and about 5 times...More
Bought a tour trip with Seaman Tours for 3,300yen. Originally on the website it said we'd be able to go onto the island, but apparently that hasn't been the case since September or so, as a typhoon knocked out the landing port/ramp so noone can...More
Went with Gunkajima Concierge tours. Easy to get to, Tram and 800 m walk from Nagasaki station Nice boat lots of paperwork before boarding. Curiously and almost discriminatory the English audio tour only operates on the rear open deck with uncomfortable plastic sweaty seats. Whilst...More

At the end when you arrive on the island, you can’t...More
This is a spectacular half day trip. Not only is it Silva’s Island in Skyfall (I am a huge Bond fan and this was the best Daniel Craig Bond movie in my opinion) but in reality an island where more than 5000 people lived, mining...More
This is a one of it's kind visits. Buy your tickets at the Harbour office and bark on an excellent boat trip to Hashima and see the shipyards. You can only visit a small part of the island but the guide brings it 'to live'....More
