800 Human Sculptures Found In This Creepy Japanese Village


Japanese photographer Ken Ohki who goes by the name Yukison was traveling in Toyama Prefecture, Japan, when he stumbled upon one of the creepiest arrays of human-like sculptures scattered around the village of Fureai Sekibutsu no Sato (The Village Where You Can Meet Buddhist Statues).

“I felt like I’d accidentally stumbled into some forbidden area. Amazing,” writes Ken on his Twitter account.


What he actually stumbled upon was a park with over 800 different stone statues carved in the likeness of Buddhist deities and people close to the park’s founder Mutsuo Furukawa. His idea was to make this park a popular tourist destination, where people would come to relax. Nice idea, sure. But as the time passed the statues lost that relaxation quality about them and now give away a way more creepy vibe.
