This place consits of many rides, including a huge ferris wheel, log flume, rollar coasters, a bungee jump thingy (I think thats what it is). It also has various booths, shops and game stands all over. There is a lot of random junk and collapsed buildings/props, but the rides and the SHEER joy you get from looking at this place makes you want to ride the rides. It also has a bath house located on sight as well, which thankfully is abandoned as well.

    This amusement park looks as if it just deteriorated as with age. I am not sure what happened here and why it is abandoned. I didnt find much info on this place except that it was the park with the highest ferris wheel of its time.

    Update: Most of Biwako Towers amusement park has now been demolished. The only remaining element being what was at the time it was built, the world's tallest Ferris wheel. At 108m, called the 'Amazing 108' it now stands near the shore of Biwako, and can be seen for many km.
