Goodbye to Nara Dreamland (~ 奈良ドリームランド ~)

Among my goals in life is to visit 4 main places: most of the UK and Japan, Chernobyl and a lovely abandoned theme park in Nara (also in Japan.)

When I knew about Nara Dreamland I fell completely in love and I said to myself: "I must visit it no matter what, no matter when and how much It costs!".

The place was too magical for my eyes, it was a goal that I set to myself.
Four years have passed since then... four years with the hope of photograph that park and experience many feelings to explore it.
Nara Dreamland was built in 1961 but low visitor numbers forced it to close. The park has been closed to the public since 2006 and it was abandoned for almost a decade.

Thanks to the so-called urban explorers who are usually youtubers who visit and film abandoned places, I as many other people got to know about this magical and mysterious theme park japanese Disney version.

I recently heard a heartbreaking news ... the park is going to be demolished. What's more, the park is already being demolished and is expected to be completely destroyed for the end of this year (2017)

Can you believe it? DESTROYED! WHY!!?? My heart has broken ... I really had the illusion of going to that place, it does not matter if I spend about 6 more years waiting for that.

I feel sad, you don´t know how much it matters for me to visit that place. I'd rather go to an abandoned place like Nara Dreamland than Disneyland itself.

An abandoned place says many things: what it was, what it is, and what it will be. The daily life of another time, the nostalgia, the change in all aspects, joy, sadness, or simply amazement.
