Mount Aso Onsen Resort

シェーン·トムズ

This dilapidated hotel sits on the side of Mount Aso next to a steaming natural hot spring.  What makes this place so hard to visit is the strong stench of volcanic sulphur that wafts through its decayed hallways (wearing a face mask is highly recomended).   I’m unsure as to exactly when this place closed down, but I’m assuming the late 90’s (based on calendars and interior furniture etc etc).  The hotel itself is creepy and kind of sinister (in a fun way), but what also adds to its creepiness is the sparse volcanic area which surrounds it.
