Desolate Meaning

The most desolate city on Earth: Take a tour of the ghostly Battleship Island crumbling into the sea off the coast of Japan

Meaning 'Battleship Island' in English, Gunkanjima's real name is Hashima and it is one of 505 uninhabited islands in the Nagasaki Prefecture, about 15 kilometres from Nagasaki itself. It earned its nickname due to its resemblance to a military warship. Despite being off-limits to travellers, the island has become an irresistible magnet for urban explorers who go to extraordinary lengths to investigate and photograph the island's abandoned buildings.

The island has been administered as part of Nagasaki city since 2005; it had previously been administered by the former town of Takashima.

Laos “She stayed looking at me during few minutes but I couldn’t know what was the meaning of her bewitching eyes. Certainly a lot of curiosity to see a stranger going so deep in her country… this portraiture is for her: ‘The little girl with bewitching eyes.’” - Mathieu Faria-Fernandes

The most desolate city on Earth: Take a tour of the ghostly Battleship Island crumbling into the sea off the coast of Japan

Hell. That is what the world was soon to become. A lush, green planet, the perfect place. And it would all come crashing down. There was no way to stop it. Starving people, innocent citizens losing their homes, and, in some cases... Their lives. It was truly, the Apocalypse. ((Post apocalyptic rp. One boy and one girl, unless you only want one character. You can be graphic but try not to trigger. No sex, pregnancies, drugs, self harm/suicide. Comment to join.))
