1. Tomogashima (Wakayama City, Wakayama)
In the late Meiji Period (1868-1912), a brick fort and lighthouse were built on this island, which have since been abandoned. The unchecked overgrown moss really gives off the feeling of the abandoned city of Laputa.
2. Sarushima (Yokosuka City, Kanagawa)
Sarushima is the only natural island in Tokyo Bay. It was used as an artillery battery by the Tokugawa Shogunate during the Edo Period (1603-1868) and later functioned as a naval yard. As with Tomogashima, red brick decorates the island.
3. Kitazawa Fuyu Senkojo (Sado Island, Niigata)
You may be familiar with these very famous abandoned buildings. In the past it was a place that manufactured copper, but nowadays the buildings have been deserted. However, they still play host to a popular illumination event.
4. Shikoku Karst (Aichi & Wakayama Prefectures)
One of the big three irregular limestone deposits in Japan is the Shikoku Karst. At a 1,400-meter (4,593-foot) elevation, it really looks like the rolling fields in the movie.
