Saitama, the prefecture west of Tokyo, is known to be home to quite a few ghost towns and abandoned places. Last weekend, my friends and I thought doing some urban exploration. However, the best ghost towns are all located far miles from Tokyo, so the plan was abandoned (pun intended, and we actually wanted to go here). Instead, we decided to just visit these flowers. Little that we know about a wonderful surprise waiting for us there.
On a mountain path near Kinchakuda Park, we stumbled upon an apartment complex on a wrong turn. It was a good mistake.Thought not as authentic as we wanted it to be, it looked abandoned enough for us.
Note: As much as I am NOT a fan of HDR, for some reason, I find ruins fitting with the HDR Art Filter of my EM5)
This abandoned place might not look as authentic compared to the other greater ghost towns. However, it was enough to make us go gaga with excitement. Anyways, great things come when unexpected.
