Urban decay in Japan

[EDIT - Apologies, didn't check back far enough to see if these had been posted before. If people want this post deleted, please let me know. I will now go and hide back under my rock - Neil.]

Thanks to a thread on another site, I came across these interesting photos from Japan.

http://www.gunkanjima.ne2.jp/ - site's mainly in Japanese, but click on the Gallery menu to see the images.

http://www.ne.jp/asahi/saiga/yuji/gallary/gunsu/thumbnail.html - some really atmospheric black and white images from an abandoned coal mine on a man made island (more details here - http://www.ne.jp/asahi/saiga/yuji/menu/menu-e.html).

http://www14.big.or.jp/~kawamura/m-city/english_photo_gallery.html - yet more from Gunkanjima.

Thought these might be of interest to others.

- Neil.
