Zombie Hotel in Aso 乙姫の廃墟ホテル

2021-02-17 by David

乙姫ペンション村には面白い建物を見つけたよ!ゾンビ映画に出そうな廃墟です。

 

ケイティちゃん(犬)の散歩のときに見つけましたが、場所分からないとみんなさん見えないと思います。地図貼るね。。。

 

On one of our walks in the local area, Katie (the dog) and I came across this very interesting ruined building in a quiet wooded corner of Otohime Pension Village, and I couldn't resist a little bit of urban exploring.

 

 

 

▲ 地図には書いていないですが、衛星写真に出ます。

 

It's no longer marked on maps, but you can still see it on Google's satellite photo.

 

 

 

▲ 外からとこんな感じですね。庭には草がいっぱいありますが、通れます。

 

この建物の歴史がわからないんですが、結構有名なホテルだと思う。温泉とイベントホールなどもありますから昔は大きかったでしょう?

 

The entranceway is rather overgrown with weeds these days, but you can see that it was once a fairly grand hotel. I'm not certain of the period, but I'd guess from the age of some of the electrical items still in there, that it was abandoned in the late 90s or so? It has an onsen hotspring in the basement, and a large event room and lobby, so it was probably well known back then.

 

 

 

▲ 入口が開いていますので、この写真は受け付けですね。古いパソコンもそのまま置いてありますので2000年ほどかなぁ?

 

The front doors are ajar, so you can wander in and see the derelict reception desk in the photo. They still have some old tourist pamphlets and an old computer behind the desk, which gave me the rough idea as to the date of abandonment.

 




▲ ロビーです。あっちのダイニングホールにはまだ食器もあります。

 

To the left of the reception desk you've got this wide lobby, with a dining area beyond. All the dishes are still strewn about the place, and the kitchen seems to be the only place stripped of items. There was a bat flapping around the lobby ceiling somewhere.





▲ ロビー内のソファです。阿蘇の湿度で壁紙や天井がだんだん落ちてきますね。

 

The lobby still has plenty of armchairs and sofas thrown around the place, but you can see how the humid atmosphere of Aso in summer has really done a number on the wallpaper, carpets and ceilings. It's literally peeling off! This would be an ideal setting for a little zombie pic, I think!





▲ 2階の部屋には畳、ブラウン管のテレビ、家具や布団などがまだありますが、自然が戻ってきていますね。

Upstairs on the 2nd floor were all the guest rooms, some of which are still reasonably untouched by the elements. You can still see slippers, futons and even overturned TVs in most rooms, but the one in the photo above is probably the most striking - you can see plants growing up from rotten tatami mats, where the rain has started to get in.

 

Truly, an interesting place. Makes you think...

はじめまして!阿蘇出身の者です。突然のコメント失礼します。私が子供の時に、このホテルに何度か行ったことがあります。大人になってもこのホテルのことを思い出していましたが、廃業したため、Googleで調べてもヒットしたことがありませんでした。そのため、今回このサイトを見つけて感動しています!地下に温泉があったことや、ロビーが広かったことを覚えていて、間違いなくこのホテルです。この廃墟について投稿していただきありがとうございます。早速家族にもこちらの投稿を共有しました。
阿蘇の冬は寒いので、お身体にはお気をつけください。

I commented in Japanese, but it was weird, so I'll comment in English too.

Nice to meet you! I'm from Aso. Please excuse my sudden comment. I visited this hotel several times when I was a child (in the late 1990s), and I still remember this hotel as an adult. However, since this hotel is no longer in business, I could not find any details about it on the Internet. Therefore, I felt very nostalgic when I found this post. There is a hot spring in the basement of this hotel, so it is definitely this hotel. I look forward to more of your posts!
Please take care of yourself.
