When Google’s apparatus was moving through the streets of Japan, it caught something freakishly weird, even for Japan standards. The camera saw a group of people in the streets wearing pigeon masks and going on with their day as if nothing happened, they even turned to look into the camera as it flew by.

8. Japanese doll village

If you don’t really like dolls, you shouldn’t consider visiting this village as it’ll creep you out, the village is called Nagoro and it’s home to a few residents but what makes it special is its load of non human or inanimate resident.

Tsukymi Ayano resided in Nagoro as a child but she was left alone by her family when she was a child. When she came back in the early 2000s, she made a doll in the likeness of her father and then proceeded to making dolls that looked like formal residents too. It may look creepy and weird but it’s a tourist attraction.

9. Dumped Mannequins:

10 Strangest things captured on Google maps This is not just strange but awfully eerie as well. From a distance it looked like a bunch of dead bodies dumped in a dumpster as an attempt to conceal the evidence but a closer look revealed it was just a bunch of Mannequins tossed into the trash. Why the owner had that much Mannequins and why he threw them begs the question.

10. Friendly Gathering

10 Strangest things captured on Google maps Just a couple of friends standing in the deserts wearing creepy masks, nothing weird about that right? There’s not much knowledge as to why but it’s definitely something to be creeped out by and they were staring into the camera too.

It may just be that they saw the camera behind them and decided to mess with whoever is viewing them but it’s still puzzling how they’d happen to have those masks in their cars.

Well, that’s all for now folks, see you soon
