Haikyo simply means “ruin” in Japanese. But haikyo also describes the Japanese version of the hobby known as urban exploration. Haikyoists, as we call them, visit abandoned towns, houses, hospitals, schools, industrial sites, theme parks and virtually any forgotten or abandoned place. This website is the result of years of adventures throughout the Japanese ruins. You will find here hundreds of places and thousands of photos taken by Jordy Meow.
