Nara Dreamland's Train Crossing

Sunday, December 7, 2014

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.

Exploring the theme park, during an extremely foggy and damp April morning was hauntingly surreal.
