    In Japan abandoned places like these are called “haikyo.” I began photographing them back in 2007 and just recently had a photography exhibition in Florida of a selection of those shots. Not many of the haikyo in Japan were as colorful as this abandoned amusement park though.

    I find it interesting that a serious photographer also shoots haikyo too!
