Hotel Royal

The Hotel Royal is a huge 7 floors love hotel located in Kanagawa, not far from Tokyo. This ruin has been obviously there for a while, but at our surprise, the alarm was still actually working ! It rang, and later the police came. It finally was handled easily, but I understood that, in my next expeditions, I should be more careful…

If you want to see the inside, please have a look at John Grist and Tokyo Times websites.

  • Wow, who would have thought they put alarms on a well covered location like that? I guess it became too popular over the years… and to expensive to tear down. Thanks for the warning!

    • Apparently, the alarm has been here for a while… after this post I received two emails of people who’ve been there as well, and got caught by the alarm 😉

    Wow.. crazy that there was an alarm.
    Did you stay until the police came? What did you say to them to resolve the situation?

    • We pretended my friend and I that we were foreigners just going around the lake but got interested by this funny looking “building”. I made one of the guys laugh a lot with my bad Japanese and I think that helped a lot 😉
