planning to sell an uninhabited island, Mitsukoshima (Mitsuko Island). Not only that, it's being auctioned off, the first such event.
Mitsukoshima is actually two islands, the northern one of which is up for sale. About 7,600 square meters (about 4.7 square miles) of nothing but trees and weeds. If only it had come available while my parents were looking at buying a plot of land! Though I think they wanted something they could drive to in just a few hours. Or, you know, at all.
What do you think? How much would you bid on a Japanese island? Maybe we should start a pool and buy it ourselves! The Anime Vice Island of DOOM! It'd be like a theme park!
...Okay, maybe not. Actually, that's a better question: what would you DO if you had an island of your own?
