Higashi Kanagawa Saiseikai? If it's the one in Higashi-Kanagawa I've stayed in this place. It's a hell hole from the start. Very poor sanitation. No WINDOWS in some rooms. This report doesn't surprise me at all.

Lucky they were in a hospital when it happened. BOOM BOOM! Hoo yeah.

Higashi Kanagawa Saiseikai?

The full English name given on the website is Saiseikai Yokohama-shi Nanbu Hospital, located adjacent to Konandai Station on the Keihin Tohoku/Negishi Line. This one looks reasonably well maintained.

Of course it looks nice on the website. They keep the zombies in B ward barricaded inside. They're the ones who suffered from food poisoning and unsanitary conditions.
