Hashima – Kyushu, Japan – Island is hell

Hashima – Kyushu, Japan – Five kilometers from the coast of Japan in the Kyushu region. An island emerges from the water that resembles, a rather powerful ship. No wonder Hashima is called Battleship by local residents. Or Ghost Island – because hundreds of people were killed cruelly. From the end of the 19th century, there were Mitsubishi concern mines. In which underwater coal seams were exploited.

During World War II:

Chinese and Korean forced laborers came to this Japanese island. As a result of inhuman living conditions and over-work. Almost 1,300 prisoners died here.
Later, workers came voluntarily, and the island itself expanded.
Reaching a length of 480 meters and a width of 160 meters. At its peak, this allowed over five thousand people to live there. With the cessation of mining in 1974, the inhabitants hurriedly left the island.

Despite the ideas of transforming island into a tourist attraction. Severe weather conditions and high costs of reconstruction, mean that only gloomy ruins threaten there – and the secrets hidden in them…

Sakurajima – Japan, Kyushu


  • Location: Japan, Kyushu island
  • Peak: 1117 m a. s. l.

Sakurajima – The volcano is located on the Japanese island of Kyushu. It is not without reason that it is considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes on Earth. Since 1955, it has exploded almost continuously. It age is estimated at 22,000 years. Sakurajima is very close to the city of Kagoshima, inhabited by 700,000 citizens.

The historical testimonies of explosions known to us date back to the 8th century. The largest eruption took place in 1914. Until then, the volcano has not shown any activity for more than a century, so it has already been declared extinct. Due to the strong earthquake, the inhabitants of the island luckily evacuated before the eruption. The lava leak lasted for over a month. As a result of this big explosion, the island began to grow, until it finally merged with the continent.

In 2016, the volcano exploded again. A fire was coming out of it, and a cloud of smoke and volcanic dust was rising above it. Broken pieces of rock fell two kilometers further. The main concern was caused by the relatively close location of Sendai nuclear power plant.

Mount Fuji – Japan, Honshu


  • Location: Japan, Honshu island
  • Peak: 3776 m a. s. l.

Mount Fuji is the highest Japanese peak. Located on the island of Honshu, 100 kilometers southwest of the capital – Tokyo. It is a stratovolcano that was created by repeatedly throwing lava and ash. The mountain, which has a perfectly symmetrical shape and a snowy peak, has become the symbol of the whole of Japan. The first documented eruption took place in the year 800 BC. Since then, there have been several of them – the last known explosion occurred in 1707, when the ash covered the whole city of Edo (Today’s Tokyo).

The Japanese have been worshiping the mountain since prehistoric times, they were gaining it by courageous priests and pilgrims, mainly followers of Shintoism and Buddhism. Supporters of shinto with the mountain combine many deities and legends. Above all, the female deity Konohana-no-sakuyahime. She is a beautiful woman who stops the volcano from erupting, and on the orders of which sakura blossoms in spring. From 1558 there is even a religious sect dedicated to this mountain.

The first to climb Mount Fuji was an unknown monk in 663. From 1868, access to the summit was allowed only for men. Currently, around 200,000 people visit the mountain each year.

Television 8K – In Europe, TV providers are still boasting of HD programs. Meanwhile, the Japanese went a step (or even two) further. At the beginning of December 2018, the local broadcaster NHK launched the world’s first TV channel in 8K quality. What does it mean? Image resolution 7680 x 4320 (33.2 megapixels), supplemented by multi-channel sound 22.2. In the future, the BS8K station is to broadcast, among others direct broadcasts from the Olympic Games, which will take place in this country in mid-2020. So far, viewers can watch breathtaking shots for 18 hours a day. Filmed in the most beautiful corners of the Earth, and concerts of famous orchestras.

Intelligent power distribution – All-wheel drive

Intelligent power distribution – In many cars, the drive is electronically controlled, which allows better separation of torque between wheels. Some systems, as in the case of the Haldex system, redirect drive to the second axis when the sensors catch the slip.
In others – as in the xDrive system in BMW – the drive hits both axles. In normal conditions, i.e. when the grip is good or very good, 40% of the drive is directed to the front and the rest to the rear – BMW thus behaves typically sports characteristics. Torque, through a multi-plate clutch with a suitable control computer. It can be easily and continuously distributed in xDrive between axles – up to 100%, only for two wheels.
In Subaru, the drive was driven with semi-axles driving the wheels, which are the same length. This “symmetry”, according to the Japanese, greatly improves the confidence of running on curves, especially on slippery surfaces.
