There are few things creepier than an abandoned Japanese sex museum (NSFW)

Like any reasonable human being, you've thought to yourself, "Man, I wish there was a building where I could wander around in total darkness and decrepitude, surrounded by giant stone genitalia at every turn." Well rejoice, because there's a place in Japan where your fantasy is a reality. Welcome to the Mansion of Hidden Treasure. It's like Silent Hill, with more dildos.

At this abandoned erotic art museum — which has been closed for almost 15 years — carved stoned phalluses and vaginas too cumbersome to move sit in complete blackness, awaiting trespassers to trip over them. Explain the urban explorers at the Japanese haikyo blog Abandoned Kansai, who recently visited this spot:

Opened on October 1st 1978 the Mansion of the Hidden Treasure was in business for almost 20 years before it was closed in the second half of 1997 [...] There was no pornography found in the abandoned Japanese Sex Museum – only a couple of paintings (some of them in a special room with black light lamps), softcore photos (e.g. Playboy Centerfolds), a couple of mannequins as well as lots and lots of wooden and stone sculptures; dozens of them, to be accurate. Sculptures of penises, vaginas, combinations of both, couples in the act, buttocks, masturbating animals, priests, deities, demons and whatever you can imagine. In one room there was a forest scene with penis shaped mushrooms. Or mushroom shaped penises. Your guess is as good as mine. It was almost impossible to open your eyes without looking at a phallic symbol.

Although the below-the-belt statuary was mostly untouched, the same could not be said for the mannequins. Models of Marilyn Monroe and Emmanuelle had lost pants and limbs, and Sleeping Beauty had grown a bouquet of vibrators on her bosom. Here's a walking tour of the museum (which is like a very sexy game of Doom) and some snapshots.
