Nara Dreamland was a theme park in Nara, Japan which was built in 1961 and modelled after Disneyland in California. Resembling a real life Spirited Away, this gloomy theme park was destined for failure, and due to the fact that it was an extremely cheap copy, it didn’t have much success and was pretty much a ghost town before it closed down permanently many years ago. Since being abandoned, the dodgy theme park owners put up nasty spiked fences and barbed wire around the whole park hoping to keep urban explorers out. I had read rumors online that the place was heavily guarded, and very few had managed to spend a significant amount of time in there since it’s closing. However, that didn’t stop us from finding a way in and getting some great photos.
