     History
    Gulliver's Kingdom is a theme park that failed. It opened in 1997 but was shut down in October 2001, after Niigata Chuo Bank (which had backed the project) collapsed under the weight of non-performing loans. Now the theme park has been auctioned off to a resort company, but there are still no concrete plans. The theme park is located in Kamikuishiki village Yamanashi Prefecture situated at the foot of Mount Fuji Aokigahara area- the nation's most popular suicide spot: http://www.uer.ca/...=22782&galid=14898

    The village also gained notoriety in the mid-1990s as the cult terrorist group Aum's main base, where they produced the poisoned chemical Sarin. The village will soon disappear due to the prefectural government rezoning the area so that it can be combined with other administrative municipalities
