Following the fall of the USSR a crowd of tourists consisting both of businessmen and those willing to sell old Japanese cars in Russia invaded Japan. The number of Russian citizens living next to eastern ports increased hundreds of times leading to launching an entertainment park next to Niigata city in 1993. The place was called Niigata Russian Village and embraced a church, hotel, museums, restaurants, circus and many other buildings. The village had been there for 10 years and ceased to exist after collapse of the financing bank. Let’s see in detail what is left till today.

  1. what an amazing place… 😐 but the most interesting picture is that with “katyusha menu” 😀 nice post! greetings from Romania!

  2. That can’t seriously be the church’s Iconostasis, can it? Also, I wouldn’t want to go anywhere near the kolbasa in pic 46.

  3. I know that place very well, as I was supposed to go and we cancelled… for the reason that it’s supposed to be quite empty now! Half demolished. When were those people taken? Is it recent? I’m really surprised, I never though so many pictures of that place, it looks great!

  4. Very interesting, ghost towns fascinates me. There’s a hastily abandoned Russian town in Svalbard as well. Only the occasional polar bear stop by there now.
