Ghostly abandoned sites in Japan

They look like the set of one of those post-apocalypse movies, but they're not—they're real-life modern-day ghost towns in Japan.

The captions are all in Japanese, but the photos are pretty much self-explanatory. There are resorts that went under because of bad business decisions, and a few sites (including an entire island) that were left in the wake of Japan's collapsing coal industry.
