Kowloon

Kowloon Walled City. Located in Hong Kong, it was a city within a city. It cut itself off from the world. It was like a hive that was monitored by the Triads. It was riddled with crooks, brothels, the lost, drug addicts, and people that were poorer than poor. There are only few photos of the place and drawing on how it worked before the government destroyed it. It’s a place that inspired movies, videogames and animes.

One of the many movies that was inspired by Kowloon.
One of the monsters chasing the characters in Kakurenbo. Knowing what kind of people were housed in Kowloon, it makes you wonder if these monsters were based on the twisted crooked evil that lurked in there…
Look of craziness

Despite all the negative things of Kowloon, they had places of healthcare that where ran by unlicensed doctors. They also had fabrication shops, a food market, and schools. Even an indoor temple.

🙏

It was a place that gave birth to characters. A place so ran down that you would imagine that it would turn residents into monks, for that it will be one of the ways escaping that place mentally. I guess that’s the beautiful thing about living in the dumps… You can just look up and see the light… Even though light didn’t shine in that place, some individuals ended up making their own light. 🙏✌️
