Japan’s fondness for fads and its ferocious rate of redevelopment means that there’s always the chance of finding some ruined buildings to have a rummage around in. Hence perhaps the popularity of haikyo (ruins) in Japan, and Tokyo Times recent chance to have a look around a long-abandoned love hotel.
Also, as luck would have it, the aforementioned accommodation is almost next door to a similarly rotting restaurant, where tight-lipped lovers perhaps lunched;
the eatery’s personal rooms once perfect for those after a little privacy.
Something they now sadly offer in abundance,
providing the dust,
and the debris isn’t too disconcerting.
And while a few restorative drinks may once have been required,
they are probably now best avoided,
as the lavatory is definitely lacking in luxury.
