I just had to get close to the rusty old flying saucer spotted from above.
Let's go discover this very special haikyo with a man who is equally special, or maybe not.
"Jordy, did you give up the haikyo?" Here’s my answer, distilled into a new Best Of covering the past two years.
Aokigahara, known as Japan’s suicide forest, is a unique place in other ways. Silent, no wildlife in sight, magnificent trees and shrubs, and really easy to lose yourself in.
The abandoned tin-mining village, about 50 km from Chichibu in Saitama, can also be reached from Kofu in Yamanashi.
Exploration of the abandoned Western Village in Japan with three girls who enjoyed pretending to be part of a western movie.
Japan has many ruins, abandoned places, and ghost spots. Here are my favorite urbex locations in Japan for the past two years.
Nara Dreamland was an abandoned amusement park. I've just spent a year in Nara (2015-2016), a kilometre from the park, so it's time for me to write a little epilogue.

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.
