Beautiful Pictures of Abandoned Love Hotels in Japan

Bob Thissen has been exploring abandoned and dilapidated buildings for almost 10 years. This time, the dutch photographer focused on Japanese love hotels.

These themed hotels can be booked for an hour or a night, offering intimacy and discretion to the couples coming here to have sex. Like many other places in Japan, this hotel was abandoned.

“It’s nice to see nature taking over earth,” says Thissen to CNN, “when humanity comes to an end, nature will rule again.”
