The world certainly has no shortage of abandoned places to explore. However, the creepiest and most heartbreaking of all are abandoned amusement parks. Once full of joy, these wastelands now sit empty and in disrepair.
Dreamland first opened its doors in 1961. Its design was very much influenced by California's Disneyland.
As time went on, however, the number of people visiting Dreamland slowly dwindled.
In 2006, Dreamland closed its doors for good.
When you hear about an amusement park closing, the story usually has something to do with a horrific accident or a grisly murder.
With Dreamland, the reasons were purely economic.
In its heyday, Dreamland boasted the biggest wooden rollercoaster in Japan.
Today, the park is closed to the public. Those caught trespassing can expect heavy fines and even jail time.
