Yashima, Japan's Dead City

During an upsurge in mid-eighties’ Japanese economy, the people of Takamatsu decided that the plateau of Yashima was an excellent place to encourage tourism, so took to pouring money into developing this sacred land.

Six hotels were built, along with many parks and trails – even an aquarium. Though somewhere along the line people realized that Yashima plateau wasn’t so such an attractive opportunity, especially with views of the nearby rock quarry.

Visitor numbers then dropped as millions of Yen were lost on inflated real-estate deals. All the hotels and shops were forced to shut down, as was the cable car that at one point transported many to Yashima’s heights.

Makes me think there may have been another motive. Reminds me a bit of Pripyat, but I know...no Chernobyl near Yashima.
