Tally ho - want a ride lady ?

various: Using Love Hotels

Very often the overnight price for love hotels is about the same as a mid-range business hotel. The problem is that you cannot check in until about 10.30 or 11PM. This means dumping your bags elsewhere until you are ready.

For one night at least it is something different. Some Japanese love hotels don't want foreigners staying and try to get rid of them. Others are OK about it and some are automated - so no problem!

Be careful about prices - make sure you get the overnight rate and not the hourly rate, or 'rest', which ain't cheap.

Unique Qualities: I could get into deep water here - so I'll be careful.

Basically wherever you mind can take you as regards furnishings - you will find it somewhere in a Tokyo love Hotel room.

One of the oddest I found (admitedly on a website and not myself) was a merry-go-round in the middle of the room.

I'll stick to something less kinky like a pink medieval dungeon decorated with inflatable models of large alien women with enourmous breasts.... in custard.

Nice buckets ! - Tokyo

Nice buckets !

Various: Unusual views !

When staying in Tokyo, we found basing ourselves in the Ikebukuro district to be very useful.

It has a number of 'business' type hotels that are quite willing to bargain with tourists, there is a pedestrianised area with a good range of food options and it is lively all the time.

Unique Qualities: One of the hotels we stayed at after a few days offered us some 'executive' rooms normally used by middle-ranking business big boys. Having a small kitchenette and extra room was good - but it did have one very unusual feature :

A woman in the flat opposite spent hours on both the nights we were there washing her windows - topless. In such a kinky nation I have no doubt the hotels payed her a modest something to enhance the view!

Comparison: less expensive than average

Directions: Get off at Ikebukuro station at the west exit and head north west.

Price: US$40-80
