Mitsukejima

Located on the opposite side of Wajima on the Noto peninsula, Mitsukejima is an small, uninhabited island (150m long, 50m wide and 30m tall) famous for its unique shape. Also known as Gunkanjima “Battleship Island” because of its shape, this island has no link whatsoever with the other famous island named Gunkanjima, located in Nagasaki.

According to local folklore, Mitsukejima was named by a local monk and artist, Kūkai (774–835), who was apparently the first person to discover this island when travelling from Sado Island.
