Lost Worlds – Japan Times Articles

By Michael Gakuran | | Haikyo / Ruins | 14 Comments |

A collection of haikyo articles penned by Japan Times staff writer Eriko Arita ventures into the deeper meaning behind ruins exploration and its popularity in Japan. A mention of my thoughts of the subject are included in one of the stories.

Lost worlds of Japan – Exploring the popularity of haikyo, the nostalgia for all things transient and a mention of my interview.

Roads to nowhere lead to past times – An authority on Japan’s old tunnels, Yoshiyuki Hiranuma, gives us a rundown.

Crumbling relics tell of life and death — and of rebirth, too – Kaoru Nakata gives a great overview of Japan’s ruins and how they provide not just an economic value to the country, but also a spiritual one.

I’m curious. What’s the deeper meaning behind ruins for you?
