3 Hashima Island, Japan
Being forgotten after being abandoned is such a tragic happening. That’s the case of Hashima Island, Japan where in it used to be a coal mining facility where population reached a peak of more than 5,250 people in the year 1959. After discovery of petroleum, the usage of coals decreased thus the Hashima was abandoned, and was given the title “Ghost Island”. Hashima, now deserted and neglected guards the entrance to Nagasaki Harbor like an odd, dead lighthouse, appealing little attention from the curious stares of people on passing ships.
