Start!
Meeting at the Gunkanjima Conciere
Company special lounge[ See the map ]
Please get off the street tram at the "Ourakaigandori street" station (about 20 minutes from the Nagasaki station), situated on the seaside and below the Glover Garden and the Ouratenshudo Church, which is also a national treasure. Going toward the seaside for a mere 30 seconds, you will find the Gunkanjima Concierge Company lounge (it is about 2 minutes away from the "Glover Garden" bus stop by walk, at the entrance of the "Seaside Park")
長崎水辺の森公園

An elegant pier,
the "Tokiwa Terminal landing pier"
常盤ターミナル桟橋A pier elaborated by a designer in one of Nagasaki’s important touristic area.

The Iojima Island landing pier with its palm
Have a break at the resort-like red roof terminal, where you will find a stylish cafe to relax and enjoy your waiting time at.

The Nagasaki harbor is full of discussion topics
Soon after departure are visible the former foreigners settlements, on the southern and the eastern parts of the hills. The old Glover Garden has been put on the Modern Industrial World Heritages temporary list. On the right spread the Nagasaki Mitsubishi Shipyards. Japanese first "hammerhead" crane is still active nowadays; also the state guesthouse "Senshokaku", the shipyard where the battleship "Musashi" was born, the Concierge guide will tell you everything about Nagasaki.

The ship went through the Venus Wing Bridge
The view at dusk time or when illuminated at night time is fantastic. The bridge was finished in 2006, and ties up The "Goddess" (area inside the Nagasaki peninsula) and the "God" (area of Kaminoshima).
Going through the Iojima Island, the ship enters the outside sea, and the waves will get higher…

Takashima Island is visible

It is the starting point of Japanese coal mining, initiated by Sir Glover and Yataro Iwasaki, the establisher of Mitsubishi Company. On this island are the Glover’s second residence and the Hokkeiseiko, a mining site which has been put on the temporary Modern Industrial World Heritages temporary list, thanks to its western style blast furnace. In old books we could find inscriptions saying "Takashima Island is the Eagle Island, and Hashima is the Wings Island": Takashima Island was for Hashima Island, an irreplaceable thing...

Going through Takashima Island is Nakanoshima Island
Nakanoshima Island has a longer history than that of Hashima Island. The guide will give you further information about it during the cruise.
Finally, the Battleship Island appears...


No matter how many times you go on it, the Battleship Island will have a different face each time. On sunny days or by rainy days, the island becomes a picture, anywhere you take it from. You will probably feel overwhelmed by the force emanating from the ruins.
A tour around the island
This tour around the island is one of the points of the cruise. The Dolphin pier being situated at the opposite side of the island, you will be able to gaze at the highly populated high-rise apartment buildings only from the ship. Each of these buildings has its own story. Also, the Hashima shrine altar is still standing.
