Nara Mountain School


click image to enlarge

Located in Nara prefecture, this tiny little mountain schoool would be impossible to find if you didnt already know of its existence. 


Situated in the middle of a mountain range at the end of a tiny winding road, this small school closed down many years ago, leaving behind a number if interesting bits and pieces in its classrooms and hallways.


In the science room we found animal organs floating in formaldehyde, dusty books still sitting on shelves in the library and instruments scattered around the music department. But most beautiful of all were the hand painted Kanji characters that ran along the floor of the main hallway.
