Kappa Onsen Hotel

Kappa Onsen Hotel (かっぱ風呂 ホテル) is the most infamously huge haikyo hotel I’ve ever seen. The rooms are rather in a very bad state, and it’s clearly a perfect spot for those fake Japanese TV shows about ghosts.

    Wow – that is an amazing Haikyo TigrouMeow, looks huge!
    Thanks for the link to my Kappa artice.
    You even have a photo of a couple of Kappa (6th picture down).

    • You’re welcome 🙂 Yeah, that’s amazing, I took a shot of a Kappa and I didn’t know it. I could have been attacked and killed, who knows? Let’s go for a trip one day, I’m looking forward to it!

    The PC still works? WOW 🙂

    • Actually, I have NO IDEA why there are things written on that screen! Hahaha, I didn’t notice, as it was in the total darkness! But I doubt there is electricity anymore in that building, so I guess those characters got printed on the screen itself for some reason…

        This is an effect of cathode ray tube displays when they display same picture for long time – their luminophore layer gets burned by the rays at particular places and therefore picture gets there dark and you can see it on the layer when the power is off.

    this is amazing! how did you keep yourself from exploring the whole thing?

    • Honestly, this place is way too erie! You can’t possibly stay for too long or you will go mad. I loved and hated it at the same time!

    Strangely enough Google Maps knows how to find this place, planning on going there this weekend for a photo shoot, anything I should be aware of?

    • Haha really? It has been abandoned for a while though. Did you get there? The ambiance is pretty awful. Sorry not to have replied earlier, I don’t think there is any danger in that place though. Maybe just asbestos and dust, but nothing major.

    Les deux dernières photos me font penser au Voyage de Chihiro…

    • Ah oui ? Pourtant c’est bien glauque comme il faut. En plus à l’époque je faisais du HDR sur mes photos et ça rajoute de l’horreur en supplément 😉 Rhaaa, je ne suis pas fier de ce travail du tout du tout.

    Les 2 derniers photos foutent les jetons oui! Parfait décor pour 1 film d’horreur! Ca me fait penser aux vielles bâtisses (ou châteaux) perdu dans l’Angleterre profonde avec 1 fantôme à chaque fenêtre. Belles photos.

  • Why did it close down? It is actually a building with so much potential

    • I am not sure, it’s completely run-down. Also, since the building is huge, it requires a lot of heating and maintenance.
