I’m mildly obsessed with abandoned places since finding Christopher Payne’s documentary on 19th century insane asylums. The images below are of Nara Dreamland in Japan, built in 1961 to resemble Disneyland (which was built in 1955) and abandoned in 2006. There’s something unusually beautiful about the after life of the swan rides stranded in the reeds and the way time and nature has reclaimed the merry-go-round. You can read more about it from Abandoned Kansai. All images from here.
