A hike to a tiny abandoned Japanese mountain village called Irorijyuku. It was discarded after an earthquake in 2013 with its buildings deemed as unliveable, so nobody returned. Its unaccessible due to blocked off roads and heavy snow fall so we hiked up the mountain with snow shoes to check it out. The buiildings are almost buried completely in snow.

This crumbling hospital was located on one of the surrounding islands off the coast of Hiroshima.  Built seemingly 100 years ago and covered in vines and shrubs, it was a beautiful site.  Not much was inside apart from rubbish and used white goods from the neighbouring houses.

Love hotels are dotted all over Japan. They operate as short stay establishments where couples can fool around in the privacy of an intimate space for a few hours, or maybe an entire night. Most tend to adopt a fun theme to attract prospective punters (such as jungle, medieval, Moroccan or American Colonial etc) and a lot of effort is put into their interior and exterior style. These places are extremely popular all over Japan and get an abundance of business.

 

Once a po...

Abandoned theme parks are always fun to check out (more so than visiting active theme parks).   

Built in 1975 and with a North American western colonial theme, its doors were closed forever in 2007 (due to lack of public interest).  It now sits abandoned, derelict and rotting away on the edge of a small rural town.

I reached the park in the early afternoon after a long drive (I was actually on my way to an abandoned hotel in the mountains and sort of stumbled acr...

Abandoned amusement park - Japan CLICK HERE FOR PICS AND STORY

Explored in February 2014, this semi abandoned town has a nice derelict hospital.  Filled with operating theatres, waiting rooms and consulting suites, it was a great place to take some snaps.

Another cooling tower!!.  It was pissing down with rain and freezing on the day we went here. We got a train to the town in which this awesome place was located.  We walked for about 45 minutes from the station to our destination and, after checking that the coast was clear, climbed a metal ladder and snuck inside.  The interior was beautiful!!..... and it was awesome to be inside another cooling tower.  This one was interesting because of the little house/shed thing plon...

The abandoned stock exchange rates highly with urban explorers and it was high on my list of 'must see' places.  We got to the city in the morning to meet up with another mate who had done this haunt a few times before and made our way towards his usual entrance.  It was boarded up with no chance of getting in.....so we walked around the back and, as soon as the coast was clear, squeezed our way through a locked gate.  We pulled on a heavy door handle and, to our luck, it...

This place was awesome.  The convent was actually right next to the abandoned chapel (as blogged about earlier).  It was kind of like a combination between a convent and a hospital....however whichever way we viewed it, it was beautiful.  We were first greeted by a creepy old lounge chair sitting sinister in front of an old television.  We ventured further in and climbed a stairway to the upper level.  Each room was awesome in its own way.....some rooms had dirty hospital...

This place was ok.  No major thrills (ie: no cool hospital equipment or beds to photograph), but the sparse interior was kind of nice and the 1940's orange tiles on the walls gave the space a nice, warm light.  The two major draw cards here were the front circular windows which were awesome and looked great when the afternoon light hit it, and a nice semi crumbling stairway covered in dirt.  We stayed here for a while and then got busted on the way out by this bloke who t...
