Shime Coal Mine, Fukuoka (aka Zombie Fortress)

Standing at approximatley 48 meters high, the Shime Coal Mine (aka The Zombie Tower) was built in 1943 and ceased operating in 1964. The structure still stands proud and beautiful on the outskirts of Fukuoka. Back in its hey day, the top of the tower housed a bunch of offices and from its centre, a huge cable wound 1400 meters into the depths of the mine below.

Very popular place for Japanese photographers.
