Japanese Ghost Town


Tokyo Times visits an abandoned iron and zinc mining factory town and it almost feels too good to be true. With tatami mats and boomboxes still in place, it looks a movie set for a yet to be filmed feature about a mining camp that packed up but forgot to tell the doctor they were setting off for greener pastures. Left alone for 30 years, the doctor's peace is disrupted by a group of Liquid Paper-huffing teens who point and giggle at his brain in a jar only to be carved into little pieces and reassembled into goblins!



Brain in a jar? Come on! It is too good, right?!
