I, Nakano-chan, am delighted to announce that we have launched the slideshows of the maps of the past and present of the ex-Army NAKANO SCHOOL and the now-defunct NAKANO PRISON in our Nakano Dark Tourism site.
The Imperial Japanese Army Nakano School slideshow of seven maps, from 1936 to the present, shows the exact geological scope of the clandestine spy academy that had existed in the north of Nakano Station. The school covered areas now known as the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Hospital, campuses of Meiji and Teikyo Heisei universities and part of Nakano Shiki no Mori Park.
The other slideshow about Nakano Prison contains four maps from 1923 to the present. The prison was closed in 1983 and the place is now Heiwa no Mori Park, a Tokyo metropolitan government sewage disposal facility and some buildings linked to the Justice Ministry.
