I was surprised by the devastation visited upon this place in only 41 years of abandonment. But, the typhoons that batter this place must be epic. It makes me wonder about the effectiveness of the sea wall.

Reclaimed by nature - interesting to know if the ruins are a haven for wildlife such as birds.

This is a good example of the persistence of weather in destroying anything left unattended. A fine image.

A grim looking view.

Sad scene of the effect of Nature in destruction. A fine shot from the boat. :)

Another sad example of a mining city after the end of the activity. Nobody is interested in finding another use of buildings located usually far away. The image shows it excellently. Very ominous sight.

Forces of nature can be "epic" ... they don't need much time to produce such devastation !! Impressive view ...

I know Hiroshima rebuilt. I thought Nagasoki did too.

@The#1AcePhotog: It has rebuilt. What you see here is an abandoned island that lies 11.8 miles (19 kilometers) southwest of Nagasaki Harbor. I have an explanation here.
It is a dark place

The sea wall certainly shows the wear - I'll bet you are right, those Typhoons must have really don a job on the concerts facings in all the structures....this is kind of one of those scenes that (I hate to say it) movie producers now like to use.....What a story
