The last time I went to the Akasaka Love Hotel on Lake Tama was November 2008. Winter was just setting in and had not yet sloughed away the summer`s ripe vegetation, meaning that this gorgeous neglected Toyota was mostly buried in foliage.
I took a few shots of it scraggled with greenery but they didn`t stand out. Now winter reveals its pale bones, most of them broken backwards and jiggling loosely on rusted hinges.
SY and I cycled here from Tokyo, the same as I did the first time I came. It was an 80km round trip with 4 hours spent in the saddle. We also checked out the Red Blossom Restaurant, and another love hotel on the same strip called The Hotel Queen. I`ll put those up shortly.
Somebody climbed up.
Somebody called out- “Fight the Power!”
