Nara Dreamland, an abandoned theme park in Japan

Nara Dreamland theme park was built in 1961 near the city of Nara, Japan. The creators of the park were inspired by Disneyland in California and tried to replicate the same feel, copying some of the main landmarks including the Train depot, a Main Street, U.S.A. and the familiar Sleeping Beauty Castle. The park had its own mascots, which were 2 kids dressed as bear skinned guards, named Ran-chan and Dori-chan.

Nara Dreamland closed permanently on August 31, 2006 due to low visitor numbers. Everything inside the park, including the rides and reastaurants, was left induct and is still standing today. This gives the impression of an eerie ghost town, attracting many urban explorers.

  1. Wow. Reminds me of the stories I love, about abandoned theme parks... :)
    I've got some pictures of a abandoned building lot, I mean a house, that was in construction, but never finished. I think they would fit great to this blog. Can I send them to you?
