Little walk on a Sunday morning, and I found this abandoned factory/workshop.
Nice rusty front, and smashed window on the side to get a look in. Lots of old bicycles and tools, paint etc inside. Access would be easy due to the smashed window, but at 11 am on a Sunday morning right next to a busy road, no way for a Gaijin to sneak in. Also, took 2 photos of the interior, but one seems to have disappeared. Sadly.

On a rainy afternoon in Nagasaki, I decided to climb up a massive hill which doubles as a humongous graveyard in the rain. As you do.
Anyway, I could get some nice panoramic shots of the city.
Near the top, I found a lone, red shoe.
Then the hotel at the top of the hill. Looks great from a distance, but up close….
Then some more panoramic shots.
Next it was time to go down the other side.
Through loads of houses, and winding paths. Also, I found this odd house under a road!
I’d just come down the stairs on the left.
Some views on the way down.
Then, this abandoned gate.
Then, looking back at where I’d come from, I saw this abandoned house, completely overgrown.
Next was an abandoned looking apartment building.
A look back up some of the stairs I’d come down.
And finally, I reached the bottom.
That’s it. Thanks for reading.
So, it’s time to complete my report on Mihara, in Hiroshima prefecture. I covered the most interesting thing I found, the completely overgrown apartment building elsewhere, so now I’ll show you the rest, in chronological order.
So, getting off the shinkansen, I saw this in the station:
Mihara is famous for octopus, and octopus based products.
Sign behind says “Delicious! Mihara octopus”.
Leaving the station, I started the 20 odd minute walk to work. About to cross a river, I saw this:
It’s a gas storage tank. Not something you see everyday, bit v they often have cute pictures on like this in Japan.
Next, wandered down a side street, and found my first abandonment of the day.
Gotta love those stairs! Some other nice detail along the front, too. Next, let’s look down the side.
Next, a couple of odd buildings and a nice mountain.
Then, I found this mostly abandoned apartment building.
Looks like some people were still living in the apartments at the far end, so I just took a few pictures.
And the other side.
Then I took the small road behind the left side of the apartment building. You can always find something abandoned in the small streets in Japan. And so I did. This house.
That yellow sign in the window it’s a for sale sign.
Not that I fancy their chances pig selling it. For one, there it’s, this massive crack.
And the fact that the massively overgrown garden smelt like a cat toilet. More accurately, it smelt like a cat had used the garden as a toilet, then died in there. It stank. It was a health hazard!
Still, it had a nice mailbox.
Then I found the overgrown apartment building, then out was off to Itozaki station to go home. But that was half abandoned, too!
The door to the building on the left.
And some pictures from the left hand side off this building.
This is the building on the right.
Then it was off to Mihara station, via Hiroshima Carp baseball team painted train!
Thanks for reading!
One of the most famous abandoned places in Japan, I knew it had been well documented, such as in this report by Jordy Meow. However, being in Yokohama and having a little time to kill before my Shikansen left, as the the train pulled into Negishi station, I decided to jump off and check it out at the last moment.
It was the correct decision.
After clambering up a massive hill, I followed the map until i found the United States Fleet housing complex, and then I saw it:
It was big. And impressive.
So I had a look around at it’s beautiful, plant covered towers.
From the back of the grandstand.
Walking around the back, a warning sign….
I walked around to the other end.
I was slightly confused at this point, as Jordy had described it as a fortress, but it backs onto a park, which would be empty in the early morning, and than all you’d need to do is hop the fence. Not so tough. But how to get inside? I looked around for an entry point.
Nothing stood out. Except the security camera…..
Either things have been tightened up since Jordy got in, or the entrance is around the front, which you can’t easily see from the outside as it faces the US housing base. Best go early doors if you fancy getting in. And ask someone who’s been inside.
A beautiful Haikyo, and well worth hiking up a massive hill. Recommended, even if you don’t go in.
My last look as I went back to the station.
Thanks for reading!
