Last summer I documented this crumbling, and at the time fabulously overgrown old Tokyo hotel.
Needless to say it isn’t one of Tokyo’s regular places of stay, as along with its appearance, the business caters to the city’s poor, situated as it is in an area filled with similarly cheap and visibly rundown accommodation. That said, none of the others look anything quite like this one. Words simply can’t describe its patched up and ramshackle nature. In fact I’m not even sure photos do it justice either, but here at least is an idea of what it looked like last week before that lush summer camouflage completely covers it once again.
