  • Deserted buildings in the Department store as the titular dark feeling and Japan it is completely different. Buildings are great, but is not good.

  • Beautiful building in fort. Inside it looks not really great, messy. There is a supermarket and a snack tent is located. Empty shop Windows and wide open space. Is more out of it.
