Mukoden Hotel Abandoned Haikyo - Despite its lovely view of the Pacific Ocean along the coast of Izu Peninsula, the Mukoden Hotel is now an abandoned ruin. In part, perhaps because of its unfortunate name that also refers to a battle in China during WWII. It also may resemble a so-called "love hotel" because of its turrets, a popular castle theme of that type fo short term hotel. Haikyo simply means ruins in Japanese and at the same time refers to the hobby known as urban exploration or URBEX popular in industrialzed societies. Haikyo enthusiasts visit abandoned towns, houses, hospitals, schools, industrial sites, theme parks or other forgotten or abandoned places.
