Kinugawa Kanko Hotel Haikyo

outside sign
The Kinugawa Onsen area has definitely seen better days. Sadly, many of the hotels built along the river have gone bankrupt. The huge Kinugawa Kanko Hotel has been closed for almost 10 years and I thought it would be interesting to check it out.

doors piles
The sliding doors were open just enough to squeeze in.

Unfortunately, vandals had already been in.

office companion
Paperwork had just been left in the office, including this log of 'companions'.

yukkuri kitchen
A message was left on the blackboard telling the staff to take their time.

stool lantern
Parts of the hotel were quite dark so I had to use the light on my iPhone.

mattresses window
I went into a lot of the guest rooms but they started to look the same after a while.

room feathers
Windows had been broken and birds had made their way in.

scales 666
By the time I made it up to room 666, it was starting to get a bit dark.

international bar
Surprisingly, the bar had been left relatively untouched.

chairs entertainment room
There were large entertainment rooms on the upper floors.

tv roof
I climbed onto the roof to have a peek.

mirrors bath
The next day I went back to check out the baths on the lower floors.

dead bird basement
It was pitch black down in the basement so I could only see by the light of my iPhone and camera flash. I heard a noise and quickly got out of there!
