It is bright and colourful and sports a giant golden chimney that stands 120 meters high.

It looks almost like a theme park. Almost.

But in fact this a waste incinerator in the Japanese city of Osaka.

Over 12,000 tourists visit the Maishima incineration plant every year, with many thinking it is the nearby Universal Studios.

Built in 2001, the incinerator plant is based on a design by the late Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser and can process 900 tonnes of garbage every day.
