Abandoned amusement park Takakanonuma Greenland, Hobara, Fukushima prefecture, Japan

After the park opened in 1973, it closed in ’74 or ’75, some say it was because a few people died, probably it was to improve the park to attract more visitors. It reopened in 1986 and operated untill 1999.

It is believed to closed due to the fact that it wasn’t attracting many visitors, who were flocking to Tokyo and its vast group of parks.

A wharehouse covered with treesThe Anping Tree House, Tainan,Taiwan

The Anping Tree House was originally the warehouse of Tait & Co. During Japanese occupation, it was used as the office and warehouse of the Salt Association of Japan. The Taiwan Salt Company took control after Japan’s defeat in World War II.

An old salt warehouse by itself isn’t very spectacular, but the building since its abandonment has been invaded extensively by banyan trees whose roots and branches have created an amazing display by completely wrapping around the building
