This is a really cool giant Buddhist statue on the beautiful Awaji island in Japan. Apparently it was built by a very rich man to try to bring some sort of capitalistic religious salvation to tourists, or something along those lines. I heard that it is the 10th tallest statue in the world, and its completely abandoned.

There's a giant steam locomotive in the backyard for some reason.

Nothing like some hot wax S&M tapes inside of a Buddhist temple

And some melted wax nearby to go along with it

What was that guy eating!?

Oh its just the statue of liberty outside the window

You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.

Gotta love Japanese abandonments, always pristine. #16 is a pretty cool shot!

Members here have been posting some really unique and unusual locations lately, but I think this has to take the cake. Was this place as lightly secured as it seems?

Thanks for posting these, I've really been enjoying seeing these lesser-known Japanese spots from you.

Hey I'm glad you like seeing my pictures.

This place is ridiculously easy to get in. Basically can just waltz right in. I actually hitchhiked there with a Japanese family and the dad just dropped me off right in front and said "Are you going to go in? That's cool!"

That's amazing, I think Japan might need a visit in my life.




I like car graveyards.
