Don’t Blink: Japan’s Abandoned Sculpture Garden


(bright music) – [Narrator] This sculpture
garden located in Japan was primarily unknown
to the world until 2016 when a photographer stumbled upon it. (bright music) There are around 800
sculptures in this park, depicting a mix of Buddhist
deities and what are believed to be replicas of real people. All were commissioned by
a wealthy Japanese man named Mitsurou Furukawa. He is said to have paid six billion yen, around 60 million U.S. dollars to create this collection in 1989. There is a large statue of Furukawa, which stands overlooking the park. (bright music) The people depicted are said
to be his friends and family, but it is unclear if they had any knowledge of their stony replicas. They stand near a Japanese village, the name of which
translates to the village where you can meet Buddhist statues. Although these lifelike statues stare with blank expressions, visitors say there is an unsettling feeling
to this place and a concern that at night these
aphogees aren’t so still. (bright music)

    I think it's sweet that the commisoner( I don't no wat a commisoner is so if he torture people in sorry) dude cared enough about his friends and family to make stone statues out of them so they could be remebered weather they are alive or not an and I loved the fact there are statues of God and goddess who are Buddhist to so people might keep or gave a belief in them again

    Don't blink. Blink, and you're dead. They are fast, faster than you can imagine. Don't turn your head, don't run away, and don't blink. Good luck.
