AN urban explorer has uncovered a long abandoned love motel, with bonkers bedrooms boasting spaceship beds, merry-go-rounds and boxing rings. 

Dutch explorer Bob Thissen, 33, has explored hundreds of abandoned places all over the world, including many love hotels, but this one knocked him for six for its sheer zaniness.

In July 2019, Bob found what he claims is the biggest and most high-end love motel he has ever seen, on Honshu island, Japan.

The motel, whose precise location Bob did not reveal for fear of vandalism, is a maze of rooms containing colourful furniture, moving beds, clusters of mirrors to watch your partner from different angles and even a bondage room with a rotating wheel.

Bob said: “This place had the craziest rooms I’ve ever seen, including moving UFO beds, a rotating merry-go-round bed, a bondage room and many more.

“In Japan you often get multiple generations living in the same house, so people used to come here to have some privacy and fun and get a break from their busy life.

“You can only find love motels like this one in Latin America and Asia.”

According to Bob, the motel he visited was active during the Showa era, when similar facilities were much more common than today.

Bob said: “The Showa era terminated in 1989 with the death of the Emperor Showa, and after that it became increasingly difficult to open love motels as big as this one.

“Many motels that were thriving during the Showa era also shut down.

“What was also great about these motels is that they granted you full privacy.

“You accessed your room through a garage door, communicate with the reception via telephone and put your money in a tube which would deliver it to them.

“You didn’t have to see anyone other than your partner for your whole stay.

“Rooms could be rented for a whole night but also for only an hour or two.”
