Tokyo-based Instagrammer @neji_maki_dori has been exploring abandoned buildings in Japan ever since his first visit to the ruins of a sulfer mine in 2006. "The overwhelming scale, inorganic and deserted feel, moldy smell and excitement were all very refreshing and inspiring to me at the time," he says. "I've been captivated by ruins ever since." @neji_maki_dori sources locations from printed materials about abandoned sites and the collective knowledge base of his fellow explorers. From mines and towers to apartment blocks and even a larger-than-life building in the shape of a cow, his adventures take his followers through some of Japan's most forgotten places. For more photos from abandoned sites around Japan, be sure to follow @neji_maki_dori.

In the Israeli desert overlooking the Dead Sea sits Masada (מצדה), an ancient ruined city atop a tall plateau. More than 2,000 years old, the settlement's significant fortifications were erected between 37 and 31 BCE. In 72 CE, Jewish rebels that had taken control of the city several years prior came under siege by the Roman army. Over the course of a year the Romans bombarded Masada while building a ramp up the side of the plateau, eventually overcoming the city's defenses. The ramp and the army's fortifications remain to this day, and tourists can either walk up the narrow snaking foot path or take a gondola to the top.
