This is very, very cool, along the lines of Kowloon Walled City (which, to view, you can make with the clickey on the link to your left):

Gunkanjima, off the western coast of Japan, less than a mile long, built up for the coal mines found there, home, eventually, to 5300 (which, according to this site, makes it the most densely populated joint ever) & then abandoned once the mines were played out. Very spooky images, and well worth a look. If you go to the main menu, there's a gallery of shots from 1974, when the island was active & populated. I highly suggest this one (link grabbed from boingboing; thanks, y'all).
