“This incredibly creepy garden in Japan’s Toyama prefecture is home to
800 life-like statues, following your every move with their unnervingly
blank stares.

The sculptures were created in the late 1980s at
the request of a prominent local businessmen called Mutsuo Furukawa, at
an estimated cost of 6 billion yen (A$78.5 million).

While some
appear to be Buddhist deities, many are thought to be people he knew
during his lifetime, because he wanted them to be with him for eternity.”
