The Hotel Century is a long-abandoned love hotel in Tochigi Prefecture. It is next door to the Don Quixote, and appears to date from the same era. Like the Don Quixote, the Century consists of a number of fully detached cottages, each with its own carport. Such places would be more accurately described as "love motels", but the word motel is not commonly used in Japan. I have however seen two such places, the Motel Sun River and the Motel Akatsuki.
When I first explored the Century in November 2013, it had obviously been abandoned for many years, and nature had made a lot of progress reclaiming the site. Decades of leaf litter thickly covered the asphalt, making it resemble a forest floor, and bushes and small trees were taking over the driveway. The forecourt had become an unofficial garbage dump, with various old television sets, washing machines, and appliances lying around. This is a common fate for abandoned places in Japan, as there's a fee to dispose of large items legally, which many people prefer not to pay.
A small truck had been abandoned in one of the carports, and another was parked forlornly in the middle of a driveway.
I didn't see much evidence of gratuitous vandalism, but someone had removed the windows, presumably either for scrap or to reuse them. Some dwellings and sheds in rural Japan are little more than shacks, and appear to be repaired using whatever materials come to hand. Someone had also smashed the sinks and taken the taps. Although few people can be bothered stealing the furniture, electronics, or other equipment from abandoned buildings in Japan, theft of metal fittings like window frames, taps, and door handles is quite common.
The exteriors of the cottages were still fairly well preserved. The architecture of love hotels is often gaudy and ostentatious, but the Century was quiet and unpretentious, with little in the way of ornamentation.
