Didnt do the tour due to weather. When we went to check in staff politely told us the tour was cancelled, offered for us to go to the digital museum and promptly provided a refund without us asking. Staff helped us get an app on...More
We booked and paid for a tour of the island (incl. landing) 3 months in advance, the tour company did not advise us that they were not able to land due to damage of the jetty until we arrived on the morning of our tour....More
tl;dr, don't book this tour unless 1/ you speak Japanese, or 2/ the island has been reopened.
We just finished the combination of museum and tour of Hashima/Gunkanjima Island, except we feel like we didn't get a tour at all. We started by going to...More

My partner and I were so excited for this tour. I booked it for him as it was the main reason he wanted to visit Nagasaki on our trip.
Whilst we understand that poor weather conditions would be a legitimate reason not to land, and...More
The negative first, my audio link kept cutting out, but, that didn’t detract from the tour. Great staff, modern comfortable boat and a most enjoyable few hours. First full day in Nagasaki we headed to the office on the marina for 9:30am. We where told...More
