Overview of Love Hotels

As the name suggests, a love hotel is a special kind of hotel that provides a comfortable, erotic environment for couples to enjoy intimate time together.

There are several reasons for the manifestation of love hotels in Japan. For one thing, living quarters in Japan are often cramped and walls are often thin. Also, unlike in the U.S. and some other Western countries, it is not uncommon for single Japanese adults to live at home with their parents. These factors necessitate a separate private space for intimate meetings. The last reason is that, well, it’s Japan, and Japan is cool like that!

In Japan’s larger cities, groups of love hotels are often clustered in a particular area. Perhaps the most well-known cluster is Shibuya’s Love Hotel Hill in Tokyo. Love hotels can often be found in rural areas, sometimes in clusters and sometimes as stand-alone buildings.

bullet4 Japan Love Hotels Love hotels are not available for stays of longer than one night. In other words, you can’t leave your belongings in the room while you go out on the town and come and go as you please. Once you leave the building, you have to rent a room anew if you want to stay there again.

Some do permit single occupancy, which makes them a reasonable option if you find yourself out late with nowhere else to stay, provided you don’t mind the awkwardness of the situation.

Love hotel room rates range from around 3,000 to 8,000 yen for a rest, and around 7,000 to 10,000 yen for a stay, with higher prices during the weekend.

If you’re in Japan with your significant other, or happen to meet one during your travels, a night in a Japanese love hotel is a must experience!
