The Love Hotel, Japan

Would you like to make love in a cage? On a merry-go-round? Or surrounded by Winnie the Poohs? However quirky your sexual fantasy, there will be a Love Hotel in Japan that caters to you.

In a country of tiny apartments and paper walls, Love Hotels provide sexual playgrounds for lovers and married couples. Choose the room you fancy from photos in the lobby and pay an anonymous pair of hands behind a smoked glass screen for a “rest” (one hour) or a “stay” (overnight).

Revolving beds, mirrored ceilings and sex toys from room service are just the basics. Gang Snowman has a cadillac converted to a jacuzzi on its roof; Hotel Pamploma has a Hello Kitty room; Tower’s hotel has bumper cars; and Hotel the Rock is a prison.
