One more year has passed. I did my adventures in abandoned places in Japan with new friends, in a different style.
In the middle of Gunma Prefecture, there is an infernal train station : this one takes you straight to the center of the earth! Almost.
Do you like, sweet waterfalls and breathtaking landscapes? Then Nikkō is not only the perfect place but it is also not very far from Tokyo.
In summer, the Izu Peninsula is ideal to spend a refreshing week-end. Located a hundred kilometers away from Tokyo, I strongly suggest to rent a car to enjoy the fabulous seaside.
I have always liked abandoned Japanese schools. Not only they are sleeping beautifully far away in forgotten countrysides but they are also the cradle of the Japanese soul.
An illuminated Fuji-san, followed by 4 big bursts of fireworks on its top: that's the signature of the Edogawa Fireworks.
When we looked up, a miracle revealed itself: billions of stars and the milky way stretched from one side of the sky to another.
This year my wish was to let Kami-sama take me by the hand for nice, random walks through the city and enjoy the hanami in a more spiritual and romantic way.
I am holding my breath on my theater sit... "The Block 65 ! This is the Block 65 !". I feel like yelling but luckily, I have a pop-corn trapped in my throat that saved me from all the potential troubles.
Does that ever feel strange to you to think that the only way to the hotel is through the cable car?
The night adventure on Gunkanjima started after some refreshments and a couple Onikoroshi.
We're getting at Jigokudani this time to visit the famous monkeys bathing in the onsen...
We are heading into the new year of 2013, regretting not to have the world ended all together in 2012. Thus I am put together my favorite 15 haikyo in Japan, to remind us that the world is never too far from its final...
The place at the top of Gunkanjima Island is one of the least visited: it is the home of the masters, of those who were in control of the island.
Be careful, this is not the natural Onsen you want to bath in!
This is the perfect opportunity for me to go to Yamanashi Prefecture where I spotted two beautiful valleys: Shosenkyo Valley and Nishizawa Valley.
New Zealand Village is a place that is only suitable for a perfect weather, with nice breeze and a relaxed heart.
Nara Dreamland - the last big abandoned attraction park in Japan - is still standing 2 years later after my first visit !
I am a great fun of abandoned hospitals, they are my favorite type of haikyo. Not those empty concrete buildings, but the small wooden clinics rotting away quietly in the countryside without anyone noticing.
What about traveling with us to Nagano guys? All in drawings?
