Photos of derelict Japanese sanatorium

Den from Tokyo Times sends us this collection of photos from the ruins of the Higashi Izu-cho Hospital Isolation Ward: "A predominantly wooden structure that, due to its location in a relatively dense bamboo forest, is rapidly decaying -- the sanatorium's brave battle with mother nature now very much a long lost cause."

Bleak and abandoned isolation ward (Thanks, Den!)


  1. The silver lining of post-bubble Japan is all these great, (explorable!) abandoned 70s/80s era structures. Some of them could even give some of that cold-war era soviet architecture-pr0n a run for it’s money!

    A photographer’s/Silent Hill fan’s wet-dream!
