Dreamland by Julia Sky

Nara Dreamland (奈良ドリームランド) doesn’t exist anymore, only in memories. The theme park near Nara, Japan was in continuous operation for 45 years, from 1961, closing permanently in 2006 as a result of falling attendance. As nature reclaimed the park, Nara Dreamland became an actual dreamland. I traveled to Japan in 2016 to capture the last moments before the theme park was demolished. There is a certain eerie beauty in the abandoned, a quiet stillness and a reminder of the passage of time. Nothing lasts forever. I wanted to be the first to commemorate this beautiful location that not many people have had the chance to photograph in a collection on the blockchain.
