Nara Dreamland

Kyle Merriman recently visited Nara Dreamland, the abandoned Disneyland knockoff theme park in Nara, Japan that was built in 1961 and closed in 2006. He found it to be fairly intact, except for the fact that there are no people there and the weeds have grown everywhere. See the state of the park in a gallery of 56 photographs.

Oh man, I used to spend my summers there in the 70s when I lived in Japan. Sorry to see it in such a state. Japan had many wonderful amusement parks back then. Thanks for the memories...

I was lucky enough to accompany Kyle on our trip into Dreamland. It was indeed an eerie place and a photographers dream.
Check out some more photos of the Amusement Park on my site!
