Taking a 'stroll' around the outskirts of Kangbashi, Ordos in the Inner Mongolian region of Northern China.


Referred to as a ghost city by some...or a slowly developing new metropolis by others, spending time here gave my partner and I the opportunity to view some nice half built contruction work on the towns outskirts.  We marvelled at some really interesting architecture in this region where China meets Mongolia.  These grey structures stand tall and skeletal on the or...

Abandoned since 2000 and something??....not sure about exact times, but it was a nice find.  Everything still in its place.  Nice operating theatre and dental ward.  Nagasaki Prefecture.


Bowling alley in a suburban town in Nagasaki Prefercture.   It was sitting all dilapdated on the side of a main road. 





An awesome find....located in Nagasaki Prefecture.  On the day I visited, this place was getting demolished. Just a pile of rubble now.  Pity.

This abandoned temple is located in the mountains of Tochigi Prefecture.  Not a great deal is known about it (by me anyway), however I do know that it was run by a corrupt pries/cult.   Scattered all over the floor are small 'Ihai' tablets.  These small ceremonial placards hold the souls of the deceased.   People paid money to the temple and, in return, the priest was supposed to pray each day to the souls of these many loved ones.  The priest was found to be a swindler a...


Located in the outskirts of a country village in Tochigi Prefecture sits this two story doctors clinic.  The old dilapidated wooden building has all the characteristics of a hollywood silver screen haunted house... fully complete with dead trees on either side.  The interior is cold and creepy.


The clinic is situated along a very narrow side road with a neighbouring house sitting next to it.  At first I couldn’t find a way inside and then spotted a small hole i...

The Ashio Mine became industrialised in 1871 and produced approx 39 percent of Japans copper up until its closure in 1973.  It caused a lot of environmental controversy in the later part of the 19th century as a result of floods and pollution.  But it now sits sleepy and hidden away in the mountains (Tochigi Prefecture)


The journey to this place is beautiful and picturesque (lots of winding roads through lush green forest - depending on the time of year).   The littl...

Tucked away in the mountains about four hours drive from Tokyo is the abandoned Nichitsu Ghiost Town.   Built to house the workers of a neighbouring mine, its popularity peaked in 1965 at 3000...now it sits decayed and forgotten at the end of a snakey mountain road.  There's heaps to check out here (I've made three visits so far), so its a must see if you know where it is and how to get there.   The road leading to the town is narrow and curvey (in the instance of an onco...
