Takakanonuma Greenland, Japan Built in 1973, the park's first run at the amusement market lasted only two years. Although some say it was closed for repairs, others insist that deaths on the park's equipment forced its closure. Perhaps the park was repaired, or maybe it was long enough for people to forget the amusement accidents, but the park reopened in 1986. Staying alive on its second tenure until 1999, the park closed for good and was abandoned.

Check out this great and very large collection of photos, made at various abandoned places in Japan. There’s such beauty in the sadness of many of the pictures… Thanks to Growabrain.
