Urbex in Japan
Here is my list of abandoned places in Japan. The map below represents spots which are quite famous, or which has been demolished. Secret spots are not shared by this website.
The Futuro House is a prefabricated house designed by Matti Suuronen.
More than a little clinic, this is actually a huge complex with many buildings, more or less destroyed. Only the most recent building is still explorable. Can you spot the droid?
We had some fun, my friend Mana and I, trying to get into that swimming pool. That wasn’t easy! Luckily, we were welcomed by amazing light and playful shadows. But I have to admit… without Mana, that place would have been boring as hell.
Until 1972, this prison located on Sadoshima was active. Nowadays, it is open to the public, you just need to push the door and enter. This place is really pretty, I loved it.

I found this clinic by myself, by walking around in a little onsen town.
