Thanks again to our friends at haikyo crap, I found the location of another abandoned clinic, this time near Nagoya. As I was working down that way, I decided to take a chance that it hadn’t been demolished, and check it out. It was about an hours walk, but I was eventually greeted by this glorious site.
The abandoned clinic was still standing!
Time for a look around, so I went to the front of the building.
As you can see, it’s completely boarded up. Entry would be difficult or impossible, especially considering that this was in the middle of a residential area with houses everywhere, and it was about 4 in the afternoon. I guess they had trouble with people getting in before.
Lots of trash, including a TV, dumped in front of the hospital.
So I found a small door around the side, with some steps, but still no way in.
But there was a window with a hole in the protection just next to this door….maybe I could see inside?
Nope, ‘cos it’s boarded up on the inside, too! It’s the Fort Knox of Clinic Haikyo….you may not enter!
So then I checked out the side.
It was when I was taking these pictures that an old geezer that lived in one of the houses next door started talking to me. Now my Japanese is pretty good, but due to his accent and or the odd language he was using, I couldn’t really understand what he was saying. But I could tell he wasn’t happy. Eventually, he started to talk in a more normal way, and the conversation was kinda like this:
‘What are you doing?’
‘I’m just taking some pictures’
‘What’s so interesting about this?’
‘I just like abandoned buildings. I’m not doing anything bad, am I?’
‘Is that so…..’
At this point, I decided that it was time to repeat yesterday’s ‘walking quickly but not looking like I’m running away‘ tactic, and went for a coffee at a nearby mall.
So that’s another abandoned clinic.
Thanks for looking!
