Abandoned Japanese Mayakan hotel

November 21, 2014

Mayakan (Maya) hotel in the mountains of Kobe, Japan, was built in 1929, but has been abandoned since an earthquake in 1995. Once a luxurious resting place for visitors to the Maya mountain, it has been opened and closed several times during its lifespan, but the original construction is still in a good shape.

Though it’s prohibited to visit the Mayakan hotel, it’s quite a popular place for urban explorers and photographers. Ilko Allexandroff, one of my favourite photography bloggers (if you’re a photographer, you’ll find his page very useful!) has done lots of photoshoots in this location and shares some of his photos from the haunting hotel.
