KAMI understands lost value. In this story, we would like to show how quickly people lose interest, and what happens when they do, in hopes of teaching lessons on giving value.
Thirty years after its once glory days of lavishness, there stands enveloped in nature an abandoned luxury hotel, hiding surprises of every kind inside.
The lavish hotel, which was once made popular by volcanic black sands, sported French Baroque architecture along with plaster renditions of Greek statues and water fountains.
It once attracted middle class Japanese clientele from all over, until its appeal was lost.
Now, it stands as an awful reminder of how it is like to be left behind, after the novelty of the initial appeal has passed.
But all is not lost. The Hachijo Royal Hotel may have lost its appeal towards its local clientele, but thirty years after its demise, the hotel remains a popular destination for photographers.
Care for a tour inside? Read on and see what they found!
Aside from the obvious signs of decay, the hotel holds mysteries that can baffle even the sanest minds.
At the playroom, toys abound, as if the children playing just disappeared.
Things were also left behind, unexpectedly immaculate as if they were only left yesterday.
A telephone booth stands inside, like a classic antique piece.
Even the bar was immaculate, waiting to be restocked.
Even the office was left with the computers and stacks of paper, as if someone is expecting to return anytime soon.
Can you imagine what transpired before the hotel was abandoned?
Here is another video that shows how one value we thought was so deeply embedded can be challenged in ways so unexpected it becomes scary.
