In 1945, shortly before the end of the world war Ⅱ, the Japanese built many basement bunkers in preparation for the mainland decisive battle. One of them is located in Kashiba City, Nara Prefecture. Due to the rush of construction, the walls of the bunker have traces of countless workers pickax.

When the bunker was built, it was rumored to be the home of the emperor. In fact, it was the home of the Air General Army. After the end of the war, some of them have been used as seismological stations in Japan. It is now a famous place on the Web as a ghostly place. And this place have nothing to manage and are going to decay.

We still cannot define the meaning of this place.

I took these photos to make this place a inevitability of history.
