Thermal power plant becomes an art exhibition!
There were many power plants in the city of Yubari. Among those plants, many were demolished and only a few were left out. So the locals of the city preserved those plants and formed them in the form of an art space.
Shimizusawa Thermal Power Plant was one of the largest plants used during wartime in Japan. After a lot of sufferings, this plant got abandoned and contributes as being one of the unique places to visit.
For you all, we bring the insights and all the images of this plant here at one place. Have a look.
