Haikyo - Exploring Japanese Ruins

If you are interested in the exploration of Japanese Ruins or Haikyo you should check out this blog post from Michael John Grist of MJG: Japan about his exploration of Sports World in Izunagaoka.

This is one of the best Haikyo blog posts I have read. The reason is because the way Michael describes his adventure, you feel like you were there. You can feel the eeriness and the sadness of this now abandoned place while imagining what it must have been like years ago full of people.

    Hey Jon, thanks for this post and link. I'm glad you enjoyed the trip- to be honest it got pretty spooky at times, especially at night.
    I'm thinking I'll add a 'Ruins Blogroll' to my site, do you want to exchange sidebar links?

  2. Your welcome. Yes, we can exchange links.

    One thing about the Haikyo is that I have never visited any myself so I have no first hand experience or photos of my own.

    If I see something really cool on another website, then I will post about it.
