Japanese Love Hotels

When SMALL is a PROBLEM. In Japan, space at home is tight and privacy rare, so love hotels are ubiquitous. But leave it to the Japanese to take interior design to a new level when it comes to rooms rentable by the hour...

This recent book, Love Hotels: The Hidden Fantasy Rooms of Japan, features remarkable pictures by Misty Keasler of 70 "intensely themed rooms of the Japanese love hotel." You'll find rooms kitted out to be doctor's offices, subway cars, libraries, igloos and even pirates quarters. Imagine what Donald Trump would do.
