The images above show the former Osaka Stadium in Japan around 1998-1999. Prior to this, it was the home of the Nankai Hawks baseball team until the owner sold it to the Daiei Group and the team was moved to Fukoka City. After the sale, the stadium was abandoned and apparently purchased by a property development company that used the space as a model home showroom. Eventually the stadium was demolished and a shopping center now resides where a stadium and former showroom once presided. [Sources: One, Two, Three]
