Gulliver's Travels Theme Park, Japan, 2002

Photo: A man scrubbing a giant fake Gulliver at a theme park

A Lilliputian-like worker scrubs the giant head of Gulliver at Japan's now defunct Gulliver's Travels theme park in the shadow of Mount Fuji. Surrounded by the amusing and the mundane, Fuji—Japan's most sacred summit—manages to rise above it all.

(Text adapted from and photo shot on assignment for, but not published in, "Japan's Sacred Summit," August 2002, National Geographic magazine)
