Abandoned hospital – Haikyo

We recorded the Aho aho zombies video in an abandoned hospital at the outskirts of Tokyo. The hospital is kind of like a Gunkanjima but on a smaller scale. It was interesting to see the machinery of an old operating room from the 60’s or the prehistoric electronics of the elevators. But the most interesting thing was that even though the place is completely abandoned, it is quite “clean” and you can notice certain order within the chaos. Almost all the walls in the hospital are painted with graffiti and you notice that the people that come here to paint graffiti try to keep the place as clean as possible; the building is turning into a unique piece of art. We were also surprised not to find any homeless people living inside the abandoned hospital, we only found pigeon nests.

    Such beautiful graffiti, there are some that are truly amazing! My favorite is the one of the girl who looks like Dita von Teese!
    And the people who did them must have been really brave – abandoned hospitals are way scary!
