Hachijo Royal Resort

The Hachijo Royal Resort is the biggest and most famous abandoned hotel in Japan.

If you visit this haikyo one day, you will likely be surprised by the presence of foreigners or locals exploring the place as well. This haikyo is so popular that it probably contributed to make the island of Hachijojima more well-known. This hotel was built in 1963, used to host many honeymooners, and was the most luxurious hotel in Japan at that time. But over time, Guam, Thailand and other foreign islands became more affordable and the hotel lost its prestige; it closed and re-opened under different names, until it was abandoned in 2006.
