Jeg Liker Hashima Islandoktober 29, 2009
‘Hashima Island is located off the coast of Japan and was once the most densely populated city on earth. Mitsubishi housed all the people there. They were mining for coal under the ocean floor. 40 years ago the island was abandoned because the use of oil was more prevalent and the island became a ghost town overnight.
The island was also called “Battleship Island” because from afar it looks like a battleship. It was actually mistakenly torpedoed by the Americans during WWII.’
Man skjønner jo litt hvorfor:
De som har fulgt denne siden en stund vet at jeg elsker forlatte byer, hus, gater og generelt forfall. Hashima Island er et ekstremt eksempel på dette.
