Due to the safety rule, it is not allowed to use umbrellas in the island. Please prepare rain wear on rainy days. You are also able to buy a simple rain wear in the ship. 200 yen for each.
On nice weather days, the light might be dazzling, so that we strongly recommend passengers to bring with hats and drinks. (Due to the safety rule, it is not allowed to use umbrellas in the island.)
Please put on sport shoes or shoes with a flat heel.*For a security reason, due to the fact that the landing pier of the Gunkanjima is an iron-barred bridge. Walking with high heels is not recommended.
Passengers shall wear clothes light and convenient. For example, crossing the gangway while getting on/off the ship might sometimes be dangerous, so that wearing light clothes would be the best choice.
Rain and water may splash on the deck place. (outside seats on first and second floor) Our captain has right to ask passengers move to inside seats if the wave condition or weather is bad.
When taking the ship: It might be very wavy while the sea condition is bad, please follow the directions by our staffs.
For the person who has the obstacle (including the handicap etc.) which has trouble with ship boarding; and the person who are suffering from a disease such as chronic disease, please let us know your medical condition in advance, as we will make a decision on whether you can get on board because there is a risk that your physical condition may turn worse when boarding.
Landing time is "30-40 minutes" according to the regulations of Nagasaki City. And our captain will make the final decision of the landing time by the wave condition then. On the island, we will make a round trip about 220 meters, and the guide will explain about the photos of those days at the square of three view points.
We are sorry but we are not allowed to go inside or next to the buildings, because of their poor state. We do not know when they will collapse. Instead, you will be able to observe the high-rise apartment buildings from the ship, when having a tour around the island.
Inside the island, you will be required to follow the guide and other staffs instructions, and move into a single group.
Due to the narrowness of the path, we will ask visitors to not take pictures standing in the middle of the path.
About landing, it depends on the wave condition around the pier of the Gunkanjima. It might be possible that it looks calm inside the Nagasaki port but extremely wavy around the open sea area. Base on passengers’ safety, our captains have right to make the final decision about landing on the island or not.
