Crematorium of the Moon

On the side of a dark road covered by trees, you’ll find a little yet scary building topped by a long chimney. That’s a place where they used to send angels to Paradise, or demons to Hell. An abandoned crematorium! Spooky atmosphere, and probably more to see but I couldn’t handle the damp and heavy atmosphere of this place for long…

    Thank you Jordy for posting. I’m always happy to see new additions from you!!

    • My pleasure 🙂 I know updates are rare, and I don’t always share them on SNS, so I’m glad you could see those new photos 🙂

    Great work again Jordy. Its hard to believe you found a place that ran you off. Must have been creepy indeed.

    • I might ago again one day, but I will not go alone. Are you interested? 😉

        I would love to go back with you Jordy. I’m only afraid of heights and stupid people. Kami and weird energies don’t bother me. But alas there are oceans between us. YOu should take your friend that’s a sensitive. SHe would probably tell you the same thing I would. Nothing to fear but fear itself.

    It’s a very lonely and desolate place Jordy. Its the first time you’ve made mention of
    a place giving you the heebie jeebies. You’re managing to scare me now. I wonder how
    long its been since it was last used. Crematorium of the moon……….sounds so ethereal.

    • How long, it would be easy to find this information, the owner was living right next to it and the house is accessible. Strangely, I didn’t feel like going there, it was too dark already…

    Hey jordy! I will be in Tokyo from now till the 21st, do you have any haikyo to recommend? Interesting articles and i have read most of your posts but some of them doesn’t have a location! 🙁

    • Of course, it’s a highly secret hobby. But there are haikyo obviously easy to find and normally the map is available on this website but right now it’s broken. I am trying to have it repaired by tomorrow.

    Hey, Jordy, my name is Beni Ray. I am a Scottish high school student finishing my final year in school. I am personally a huge fan of your work with my personal photography projects taking inspiration from your photos. Your series on Nara dreamland sent shivers down my spine. I plan to do my final graded piece on abandoned buildings and I was wondering if I could ask a few questions regarding you work? mainly, what got you into photographing abandoned and derelict buildings? And has it ever gone wrong?
    It certainly has gone wrong for me in the past with security and alarms. My other questions are; Do you have any social or historical influences within your work?
    What is your personal opinions surrounding the rich Japanese culture?
    Do you have any photographers that you take inspiration from?
    And finally, what equipment do you use and how do take the perfect shot?
    Many thanks for taking the time to read this message

    Regards, Beni ray
