Keishin Hospital: Demolition

The Keishin Hospital, located in the Kanagawa prefecture, once widely known for being “haunted” and the site of petty crime has been bought by the Atsugi City Government and is set to be demolished and have its land redeveloped into a park by 2011.

The news was announced on April 23, when the Atsugi City Goverment bought the entire property for ¥12.63 million with plans to change the image of the entire site into a place where the local community can feel safe and comfortable to live.

Access to the public has been severely restricted since then, with high fences and security cameras protecting the perimeters. Just to be clear on this topic, the access to the public was never legally permitted.

    Do you have any sources for this news? I heard the site was up for demolition, but nothing about the cameras and (new?) fences… Would be great to see some Japanese language sources on this 🙂

      Hi Mike,

      First off, thank you for reading our blog.

      Here is one of the news source that I used to write this article.

      You will find information about the new security system implanted in the site in the last few paragraphs.

      Thank you again and regards,

    There are white (but tagged) fences and cameras all around the hospital, I was there yesterday. It’s really impossible to get in… that’s really sad, as it was my first time there. Now, it looks definitely different from all the pictures I’ve seen, because of these awful fences…

    Thanks. Looks like you’re right. Have you seen cameras though? They weren’t mentioned specifically in the article, but rather a 24 hour surveillance system, which could mean a guard..?

    Looks like Tigrou just answered my question ^^;. Shame. I visited last year but have a friend wanting to go recently…
