Gukanjima is an island near the westernmost shore of Japan.
It is an island built upon a reef in the early 19th century because of a coal mine in the reefs and quickly became a densely populated island 1 km in diameter and 5300 people living packed together, working the mines.
The island was complete with everything a city needs and people living on the island were very happy with their lives.
In 1974, the mine has been emptied and people living in the island have deserted it, leaving everything behind, turning the island to a post-apocalyptic movie scene.
Today, entrance to the island is prohibited.
