The Sun and Moon Drive-In is along the Okayama Highway in the town of Kumenan, the Kume-gun district of the Okayama Prefecture, Japan.
This abandoned road side attraction is nicknamed the Sun and Moon Drive-In due to its very interesting street signs but the actually name is (at least from what is translated and it could be wrong) Round 1 Drive-In Restaurant. It opened in the 1990’s as an eatery and stopping place for hungry motorists and stood out for its interesting architectural look as a mini castle. As if that did not get this little building enough attention there are 5 street signs just feet from each other marking this cool place out. It closed in 1990 and has been abandoned ever since. The future of this place is unknown.
If you can translate the signs, please drop a line, leave a comment or send an e-mail so the name can be fixed. It clearly says Drive-In but the rest is not so crystal. Thanks!
