Invisible Waves - Asano Tadanobu (2006) - Fisherman's Wharf, Macau

As Kyoji walks to catch his ride to Hong Kong from Macau's ferry terminal he walks past the under-construction giant volcano that was a brief feature in the extremely tacky Fisherman's Wharf "theme" park that runs along the waterfront next to the ferry terminal.

The volcano, much like the rest of Fisherman's Wharf, was a complete eyesore and it comes as no surprise to find out the place was demolished a few years ago. When it originally opened it had a river ride attraction inside but was closed almost immediately due to an accident that injured some tourists. Since then it has just been standing there looking increasingly incongruous (much like most of Macau's modern casino buildings) and was eventually demolished and replaced by...yet another casino.
