A Village Built Inside an Active Volcano, Why?

Date: 2020-08-31 03:00:06


Every city and town on Earth is unique, but some specimens are so extraordinary that it’s hard to believe they really exist. We found the weirdest towns on our planet. Some of them are worthy of a long weekend visit. For example, there’s a small town in Japan that was built on an active volcano in the ocean! The island looks like a paradise. You can get there by helicopter and ferry, and it attracts lots of tourists.

Have you ever heard of the small village of Nagoro? Almost all the people in it are… dolls. Once, about 300 people lived in Nagoro. Now there are only about 40. To increase the size of the population, she decided to create new people using threads and a needle. Every year, the number of dolls keeps growing. Interested? So welcome to our tour of the most unusual places in the world. These strange cities and villages can scare, delight, and surprise you. You’ll want to get away from some of them as soon as you arrive. But with others, you’ll want to stay there forever.
