Does anyone know the story behind these parks?
Many of the Korean amusement parks featured were built to bring in tourists into areas without many visitors, but didn't succeed, was that the case in Japan?
A lot of these places are just a little bit outside of some major tourist spots in Japan.
Nara Dreamland was right in Nara which is probably one of the biggest tourist spots in Asia.
I'm guessing that when Disneyland and Universal Studios came to Japan they kind of stole away the business for all these weird old amusement parks around Japan. That and the real estate bubble in Japan collapsed which probably caused all these old parks to fall into abandonment.
