Here we are in the middle of the mountains, in the Izu Peninsula. Under dense vegetation, there is a resort once popular with the Japanese from Fukuoka and Tokyo. This is the water park “Sports World”.
The wave pool. Izunagaoka was once the name of the city nearby this park.
The entry begins with the locker room, just to put in shorts or bikinis, showers and a small clinic / pharmacy to treat minor injuries.
A triangle shaped hole at the bottom of the toilets.
The locker rooms were illegally violently occupied. The walls are covered with graffiti and abandoned empty bottles are strewn on the ground and there are things more or less suspect.
A small clinic is here, for first aid.
The place could be renovated and you could live in it (the surroundings are really nice) but it will probably never be, because of the many ghosts and spirits who prowl. At least, that’s probably what the locals must think.
A room in disorder
A badge attached to the wall and the ambiance of a good Japanese horror movie.
What is this hanger doing here?
The park also encloses the apartments where you could stay with a beautiful view of the pool.
How could this idyllic location be left overnight?
A special pool for diving. No corals to explore here, but an original microcosm.
There are 3 or 4 houses like this in the park that are probably restaurants. There is a large kitchen, refrigerators, cash registers, menus …
Attention, a broken window! And nature resuming its rights.
A cash register that sticks out its tongue.
Then you proceed to the attractions. They are mainly slides in tubes, but there is also a rapid river. The park was not that big, but there was apparently also a gym.
I am not sure that going down on these tubes is such a good idea.
The landscapes often look completely surreal.
It is my first ruin and I am not sure what I am doing here.
10 years ago, I had entered a park called
We come back to the apartments and the main building.
Here! Another triangle shaped hole, as in the beginning. But what are these holes for?
The side bar of the restaurant.
The apartments are still in pretty good condition. Ah, if we had such a place in France, the homeless would know where to stay!
Can I have a cocktail, please!?
It seems that this glass needs disinfection…
Thank you ! It is time to return.
Sports World was abandoned in 1993. The abandoned park was destroyed years later, in 2011.
