Hashima Island 端島 commonly called Gunkanjima 軍艦島, is an uninhabited islands in Nagasaki Prefecture.
This article is dedicated to Gunkanjima. What we can call a廃墟island. Haikyo is a Japanese concept (coming from the Chinese characters 废墟 meaning « ruins ») which represents exploration.
When I saw the movie James Bond – Skyfall, I was immediately captivated by this giant deserted island. The calm and strange harmony coming from this place was astonishing.
I would like to celebrate this site with the pictures of a Haikyo (this name is also indicate the explorer himself) Jordy Meow and the team of photographers Yves Marchand & Romain Meffre.
