The Small Inn was an accidental discovery. My companion and I were walking to our intended destination of a humungous tourist resort. My urbex spidey senses tingled as I saw a half-hearted attempt to block the entry points. A small detour that I wish we had more time to investigate. There were a lot of artifacts in this place that warranted a more methodical examination.
The treasure trove of this building was in the library/TV nook area. Countless magazines, film negatives, and books spanning multiple decades were left scattered throughout the room. They were in pretty good condition too. Neither faded, nor dust-ridden, despite years of neglect. Many decades temperate environment has left the magazines and other media readable, or at least worthy of being donated into an archive. In our exploration of the library, we found wedding photos. I would have loved to give a few more hours to uncovering more details into the bride and groom’s life. We came across negative, which could have been from this particular couple’s wedding ceremony.
In the rare chance that I’m back in the greater Nagano area, I will make an effort to revisit this place and try to find more about this mysterious married couple.
