Release commemoration: We are selling the add-on for $8.99 until December 1 (regular price $4.99).

■ Third volume in the audio book series by the O-Project Gunkanjima evangelists known from the DVDs 『とっておきの軍艦島ガイド』 and 『軍艦島オデッセイ』 as well as the visual book 『軍艦島 全景』, and more.
■ We welcomed the 『1972 青春 軍艦島』 (published by Shinjuku Shobo) author and photographer Hiroshi Ohashi as a guest and looked back over the work of an unknown group (subcontractors) and unheard of memories of Gunkanjima along with the photos of Mr. Ohashi. In addition, the gallery includes a collection of photos taken by Mr. Ohashi of the ruins of Gunkanjima when he visited 37 years later.

Gunkanjima is the nickname of the Hashima Island coal mine off the southern tip of Nagasaki Prefecture which once prospered as a coal mining town. The island, which yielded top grade coal for about 100 years starting in the early Meiji period and provided fundamental support for Japan's modernization, combined an affluent lifestyle that depended on the outside world for its entire lifeline with Japan's first architectural and civil engineering technology, a premature city of the near future. In 1974 the mine was shut down, and the island suddenly became uninhabited. After passing many years since then as ruins, the island was been brought back in the current era as a time capsule containing the memories of its heyday.

The Gunkanjima evangelists of the O-Project are presenting the comprehensive audio book series Gunkanjima.

Approaching the island from every angle, including episodes unknown from basic the outline of Gunkanjima, as well as conversations with former islanders and people researching the island, we look into just what Gunkanjima is and what it leaves to the future.

・All the features become available when you purchase the add-on inside the app.
・If you purchase it with the same ID you will not be double-charged.
・The photos collected in the gallery are all current Gunkanjima photos taken by Mr. Ohashi.
・Official support will be from release until two OS generations later.
