Please enjoy my journey along 3 offbeat spots on the Southern island of Japan , Kyushu.

1)   Gunkanshima The tiny, fortress-like island (also known as “Hashima” or “Battleship Island”) lies just off the coast of Nagasaki.The island is ringed by a seawall, covered in tightly packed buildings, and entirely abandoned - a ghost town that has been completely uninhabited for more than forty years. It was a mining community.  


2) bungo mori roundhouse in Kusu The old Bungomori-Roundhouse in Kita-Kyushu is a relict from the days of steam trains. The train station of Bungomori is located on the train line which connects the western and eastern part of Northern Kyushu. The line was constructed in the years of industrial development of Japan. It was inaugurated in November 1929.  


3)  Katashima torpedo site      The testing site of Japanese torpedo's for the preparation for  attack of Pearl Harbor.

Best regards

nice vid, but battleship island is a evil place. the japanese murdered Koreans there for sport, forced the men into slavesry using lethal force in the explosive coal mines under the island, raped the korean children and the women, and forced them into prostitution.
if it was not for a  few brave Koreans who started a revolt at the same time of the mass executions, the japanese would have slaughtered the Koreans as the japanese forces were leaving the island.

All this was done under the lies of reoccupation of the Koreans to go to japan to live new lives conned with promises of a better life. and the japanese thought they could hide this stain and more atrocities commited during WWII

I am not aware of any permits. According to japanese drone map, its not a no fly zone. Also you cannot at moment step on the island as asbestos was found there.
