Japan is filled with a wide variety of locations and landmarks. There is no shortage of places to explore, from ancient temples to bustling metropolises. However, Japan is also home to a hidden side often overlooked by tourists. Urban exploration, or urbex, is the act of exploring abandoned or off-limits areas. While urbex locations can be found worldwide, Japan has become renowned for its abundance of abandoned locations, often referred to locally as Haikyo. Many of these haikyo are industrial sites that have been left behind due to economic decline or change. Others are simply the legacy of poor business decisions. These places often offer fascinating insights into Japan's industrial and cultural past. And while they may be neglected and overgrown, they can also be incredibly beautiful.
