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.
