Nara Dreamland

Nara Dreamland is an abandoned theme park in Nara, Japan (east of Osaka). It was built in 1961 and was essentially a copy of Disneyland in California. The opening of Universal Studios was a crushing blow to Nara Dreamland's dwindling attendance and, on August 31, 2006, the park closed permanently.

 

I explored Nara Dreamland on an April morning, in extremely foggy and damp conditions, before sunrise.
