Jeez, that looks like it's ready to collapse. Is this in Japan ?
+1 @Weebarra , and then there's that incredibly beautiful cascading shrubbery, Mother natures perfume on a pig. I think it is the same island he's been posting, some sort of mining facility.

Here is another ruin with its own sort of beauty.

The ruin that I posted is an artificial island in Japan. It is the site of mining facilities. The ruined site of the mining is dotted in Japan.
The image below is the 'Matsuo mine site' near the place where I live

That's actually quite sad :cry: Places like this are part of history and should be brought back to life as they are part of your countries industrial heritage. Do you know if Unesco fund any projects or such to preserve these sites ? I would like to think that someone, somewhere does this sort of thing.

It is said that the peak period of this island was as dense as people in Tokyo. Not only the mining industry but also the houses of the miners, as well as schools and hospitals, were able to live independently. People whose hometown is this island have also survived, and it seems that plans to register as a cultural heritage and to preserve it for a long time existed.
