鉄格子の家 (D邸)

鉄格子の家 (D邸) は、森と大きな町に囲まれた小さな丘の頂上にある。この家は、巨大で、様々なスタイルの部屋が多数ある。2005 年のカレンダーを見つけたが、この家はそれよりもはるか前に廃墟になったのだと思われる。このキッチンをみてほしい。かなり 90年代風に見えないだろうか?

この家はどんな家族、あるいは人々が所有していたのだろう? こんなに大きな家を建てた理由は? この家に一体なにが起こり、どうして廃墟になったのだろう? 答えの見つからない質問がたくさんある。

    That’s an incredible place! Where is it exactly?

    • Hi! Sorry, can’t say where it is exactly, I explain why a bit here: http://haikyo.org/about/.

      • Camcrem

        I’ve been doing some Haikyo here and there and your maps have been very helpful!
        But I completely understand that making those public could attract bad people as well.

        This one really caught my eye, hopefully I’ll find it by myself someday 😉

        Continue your amazing work, I love it!

        • I’ll try, I have more haikyo to post but I would really love to find new ones, it’s getting rare and so many of them are getting demolished 🙁

          • Camcrem

            I arrived in Japan only 4 years ago and plenty of Haikyo have been demolished in the past few years. I’ve arrived too late! ><

            I wish I could find some new ones as well 🙂

            Good luck!

          • Bbefore leaving… tell me which ones are your favorites 🙂

          • Camcrem

            I loved Nichitsu the most! There was everything I always wanted to see: houses, clinic, school, fire station… It was also my first haikyo in Japan.

            As we say, first love is always special … 🙂

        I really don’t get this huge fear of “bad people”, especially in a place like Japan. In my home country, children and teenager are much more prone to misbehave and to go on a rampage, but even there it rarely happens. And when it happens, then certainly not because these childen and teenagers looked up lost places on the internet and then made the effort to drive there over several hours only to destroy or steal stuff. No, when these people go on a rampage in places like this, then because they live near them and stumbled over them by coincidence.

        I really don’t understand how it is a thing that all over the world there’s something like a haikyo/urbex codex to not share locations, even though there is not really any problem. :/

        • I agree with you: most people destroying those places are actually locals. Not true in EU where many people are looking for such locations just for the pleasure to trash them or perform some kind of “art” (same in US I guess). In JP, we have collectors; during the past 2-3 years all the abandoned clinics were completely vandalized, they are now empty and dull.

          Anyway, the reason I am not giving them it is simply because I have been asked not to. Why would share them with strangers and lie to my friends?

        • Matt Palmer

          You are right, there isn’t much of a problem. And that’s because people don’t distribute information except to people they personally know and trust. That’s how these places are kept pristine.

          It only takes one person wanting to do something stupid like a steel wool photo and next minute the place is burnt down. If that sounds ridiculous – it’s happened twice in the last year.

        • No, it really is a problem. Certainly, a lot of vandalism happens from bored local kids and people who live nearby who stumble upon a place, but I’ve seen firsthand the downfall of a fantastic place simply due to its location being shared on the internet and it getting too much exposure – The Royal House. Jordy and I explored this amazing house and documented its history together and were extremely sad to see it covered in graffiti and vandalised more and more as time went on.

          In Europe, it seems people actually take it upon themselves to trash a location and ruin the experience for others, far more so than in Japan. And with this country becoming more accessible, it’s extremely important explorers remain vigilant about who they share information with.

    I think you should keep the locations of these places hidden out of respect for them. People can be calloused and unthoughtful. All the places you go have a beauty about them that can only be preserved if they remain undisturbed. I’m amazed that you find them at all. Great work again Jordy.

  • Emily Dixon

    hellooo
    if you can tell me, where in terms of city is this located closest to?
    And where is the maps you have ?
    thank you

  • Wes

    Great set… I am not familiar with Japanese kitchens, but the appliances look more like 70’s or earlier.

    • I tagged it 90’s, that is when it was abandoned (the last calendars), but the house has been already emptied for a while before that.

      • Wes

        I should have been a bit more detail oriented, I re-read your summary.

  • Khaled Al-otaibi

    hey where is this place and is it protected by security? Thank you!!

  • Kelvin Thomas

    Its hard to believe there are thousands of such cashes all over the world and all those homeless people. Great work again Jordy.

  • Tyron Triggs

    I need to be pointed in the right direction, Hokkaido is vast and I can’t access these maps that are mentioned in the comments

  • Tyron Triggs

    If someone gives me info that leads me to this house, I’m happy to swap it for the location of an old, abandoned Ainu village that was briefly occupied by the Americans after the war

    • Sorry, it doesn’t really work on exchange 🙁 Even though many haikyoists many people will be interested in your village and look for it, they wouldn’t exchange information just like this.

      • Tyron Triggs

        All I need is the town or prefecture, anything to go by… I’m an Australian living in Hokkaido, I understand the need for secrecy, we do t want places like this ruined… Would you consider contacting me personally , TyronTriggs@hotmail.com A hint, some vague direction, anything

        • It’s actually not Hokkaido.

          • Tyron Triggs

            Ahh I see, sorry to waste your time. If your ever up this way again, don’t hesitate to drop an email if you want exploration company.
