Kinugawa Kanko Hotel Haikyo
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.
The sliding doors were open just enough to squeeze in.
Unfortunately, vandals had already been in.
Paperwork had just been left in the office, including this log of 'companions'.
A message was left on the blackboard telling the staff to take their time.
Parts of the hotel were quite dark so I had to use the light on my iPhone.
I went into a lot of the guest rooms but they started to look the same after a while.
Windows had been broken and birds had made their way in.
By the time I made it up to room 666, it was starting to get a bit dark.
Surprisingly, the bar had been left relatively untouched.
There were large entertainment rooms on the upper floors.
I climbed onto the roof to have a peek.
The next day I went back to check out the baths on the lower floors.
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!
