Battleship Island

This is Mitsukejima, a Japanese island also known as Gunkanjima or “Battleship Island.” It looks the part, don’t you think?

It’s located just south of Suzu, Ishikawa, Japan. According to legend, the Eighth Century Japanese monk Kōbō-Daishi named the island after its resemblance to a warship. Mitsukejima measures about 30 meters high, 50 meters wide and 150 meters long. Visitors can reach it over a rocky causeway built from the shore. It’s considered a romantic place for couples to go.
