The Royal Hotel is one of Japan’s more notorious haunted places. The hotel is unfinished and off limits to the public, but it is possible to take pictures from afar. This may be, in fact, as close as you want to get to this abandoned hotel.
The story has it that the hotel was built on the sacred grounds of the Nakagusuku Castle ruins. Angering the spirits that resided there, the hotel’s construction was doomed from the start. Construction workers were killed on the job and the owner eventually went bankrupt and, some say, insane before the project was finished. The abandoned hotel is located near the official Nakagusuku Ruins in Okinawa, Japan
What the site looks like from the nearby castle
The backstory of the hotel is essentially it was visualized as a theme park/hotel complex in the late 70s, early 80s, by a Japanese businessman. He built on the site against the wishes of monks from a nearby temple and warnings from locals. There are many abandoned tombs and a sacred cave close to the building site. During the course of construction, many workers were injured and killed in accidents and they refused to work there.
The businessman claimed the site was not haunted and vowed to sleep there every night until work was finished. He lasted three days and then went insane. He was according to some stories, committed to an asylum on the island or alternately, committed suicide. The ruins are all that is left, a dizzying labyrinth of decaying guestrooms, stairs leading to nowhere, and a mysterious tower, surrounded by jungle full of overgrown tombs and a cave leading to the underworld.
