Dark Tourism refers to "tourism that involves traveling to places associated with death and suffering" (Oxford Dictionaries). It includes visiting sites with memories of human follies, such as war and suppression.

Among the main Dark Tourism spots in Tokyo's Nakano Ward area are relics of Nakano Prison, Nogata Water Tower and the Imperial Japanese Army Nakano School.

Travelers touring Japan ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, please come and view the Nakano Dark Tourism sites!
