after yesterday’s fact about singapore, we’re remaining in the far east 😬 this time, however, we’re heading to my favourite country – japan 🇯🇵
(this is a fact about japan … expect a bit of madness, a splash of crazy and a sploosh of weird 👍🏻 … strap in people)
#tdil there is a village in japan that has been almost taken over by dolls 😳 (i did warn you about the sploosh of weird 😅).
the village is called nagoro and it is situated in the valleys of shikoku. sadly, due to its mad isolated location, it’s kind of a cursed town 😕
you see, there’s literally nothing in nagoro … meaning that, as people leave (either to move into the city or through death 😢) there’s no one to fill their space – there aren’t exactly people lining up to live in the actual middle of nowhere 🙃. for that reason, the village is slowly becoming deserted 😢
ayano tsukimi didn’t like this fact when she returned to her home in nagoro 11 years ago. her solution? replace all of those who have left/died with giant dolls! 350 of them to be precise 😳
as cute as it sounds … the pictures are pretty creepy 😅 like, there’s no way i’m spending a night there 🙃. think of this – there’s even a school filled entirely with children and teachers that are dolls! 😭 they just sit there silently … generally being creepy.
feel like you need some proof? here’s a video about it 👍🏻
as creepy as the dolls might be, i can’t help but feel for ayano – it must be mad lonely ☹️ whilst she is married, her husband and daughter live away in osaka. ayano lives alone with her 83 year old father and a village filled with dolls 😕
that’s pretty much all i have to say 🙈 providing the video worked, it probably explained everything better that i can 😅 … visual media is the future peeps 🤙🏻
right, i’m out
laterz 👌🏻 #tdil
that was a pretty weird but interesting fact today 🙂 if you feel like you want some more goodness, just go ->here<-
(now, images for this one we’re really difficult 😭 so, i’ve borrowed some from a dude called fritz schumann (his website is ->here<-) . fritz is the dude who made that video and took all of those awesome (creepy) photos … hopefully this counts as enough of a credit to not get sued 🙃)
