I did a little exploring of the Kyushu University campus on the weekend. I usually just stick to the part of the campus around the law building, but the rest of the campus is kind of interesting too. Its got some nice older buildings like these ones:
And some palm trees:
And the main gate:
A sign of things to come though is this nice old building, which sits abandoned with its windows broken, weeds growing everywhere and its doors boarded up:
Our campus is in the process of slowly closing down. They are building an entirely new campus in another part of town and as each new building there is completed another one on our campus closes down for good. In about 6 or 7 years or so the whole place will be abandoned to its fate (not sure but I've heard they are going to turn it into a park). So parts of the campus have the look of a ghost town, which is kind of eerie and a bit sad. This building has some nice architectural elements that are rare, but its probably going to be torn down in the near future. I thought I'd take some pictures of it for posterity's sake while it was still standing!
