Guest love hotels in Tokyo
Some Japan Love Hotel info I found.


Love hotels - or, more accurately, sex hotels. Many young Japanese people live with their parents until they're in their mid-twenties, and as Japanese homes are quite small, bringing your new lover home might not be the best solution to your hormone-fuelled needs. Sure, you could take a drive down a deserted road at midnight, but this is a society where social face and shame play big factors (not to say that one of my friends hasn't encountered such things). Waiting until marriage certainly isn't an expected thing over here, and due to over-protective parents it might be hard to stay away for a night without raising suspicion. Or, of course, you're married and you've just gotta get some cheating done without ruining the tatami and ruining the game. Enter the Love Hotel. Thousands of these places exist in Japan - some subtle, hidden hovels, others massive neon beasts with unmistakable names like "Hotel Love". Some stand alone, others reside in "love hotel" districts, which are easy to find if you type ラブホテル (Rabu Hoteru) into Google maps and zone in on your desired area or look around at night for neon hearts.


What makes these hotels different from normal hotels? Well, while you can stay overnight, they also have hourly rates for the daytime. Some charge around 2000JPY an hour for a stay, while others will charge around 4000-6000JPY for "free time" (i.e. as long as you want between set hours). Overnight and weekend stays are more expensive. The beauty of these things is that they are quite anonymous - no need to give details when checking in. You enter the lobby and view a light-up "menu" of available rooms, with rates and pictures. You usually select your desired room with the push of a button, and go to it. Sometimes you pay up front, other times when you leave, and sometimes through a machine inside the room itself. Oh, and there's no need to reserve (you usually can't) - it's more a case of "turn up and see what's available".


Perhaps the most defining feature of the love hotel is the fact that some are themed. Type "weird love hotels" into Google and you'll find some fascinating designs - the most weird being a Hello Kitty bondage room. You can find S&M, Disney, Christmas, classroom or jungle themes if you look around. Unfortunately, many love hotels look good from the outside but are full of boring rooms. Still, the majority provide spacious, en-suite rooms (sometimes with jacuzzis) that are nicer than your average Japanese business hotel. Room service will bring you a variety of meals (sometimes Dominos pizza) and sex toys while the big TV provides an array of channels for getting you "in the mood". Instead of mints on your pillow, you'll find a couple of condoms and perhaps a sachet of lube.


How do I know so much about them? Um, well... they're usually nice places to stay, no reservation required, usually better value than your average hotel, and we were curious. Seriously, those beds are far more comfortable than the tiny ones found in reserved hotels... but when you think about how many people have "used" those rooms, it gets a bit icky.

Another good article from trekity.com about Love hotels of Tokyo.


No, you won’t be staying here with your extended family.


Yes, you can rent rooms by the hour.


No, you won’t be receiving room service.


Welcome to Tokyo and the often-used, seldom-talked about world of love hotels.


We hope you enjoy your stay. 


What Are Love Hotels?


Love hotels have long been an institution in Japan.


Beginning in Osaka in 1968, this style of accommodation has grown popular throughout the country for its unique practicality.


The target demographic of these accommodations ranges from the Tokyo businessperson looking for a sexy lunchtime hookup to the drunken tourist couple desperate to find somewhere to sleep after a night of partying.


What Do I Do?


Well first of all, let’s assume you and your boyfriend/girlfriend are spending the night in Tokyo.


You’ve gotten in to Shinjuku station and it’s late at night.  You’ve got no reservations and as of yet have nowhere to sleep.  Simply take a wander around the area.  Maybe ask a convenience store employee, or a cab driver.  If you’re in a concentrated area near a main station you will find a love hotel.


Keep your eyes peeled for discreet looking entrances.


While you’re considering it an adventure, most other paying customers will be looking to slink off into their room without being seen by familiar eyes.  Entrances will likely have parking lots not visible from the main road.  Front doors will be tinted nearly opaque.


Pay For The Night


Typically this style of hotel offers two types of accommodation.


There’s the hourly rate ‘rest-period’ and then there’s overnight accommodations.


Your average love hotel won’t have any sort of reservation system so in order to secure a room for the night you will need to check in sometime between 9pm and 12am.  Before 9pm you won’t yet be able to check in and after 12am the rooms will likely be full, particularly in a busy area during a weekend or holiday.


Look to pay around $60 for a weekday night and closer to $100 for the weekend.


Some hotels will have staffed front desks.  Others will dispense your room key via a vending machine.  In most scenarios you should be able to get a room without speaking a word of the native tongue.


The Services of Love Hotels


While the description thus far may leave you with an idea of love hotels as some grungy, seedy underbelly of Tokyo culture, you can rest assured that in most reasonable establishments your room will be immaculate.  Often love hotels will be cleaner and more sanitized than their brand name, high-priced counterparts down the street.


In addition to cleanliness, your room will likely be state of the art in terms of facilities.  You’re probably going to have a computer, a big screen TV with every channel you could ask for, and a bed that will make any hostel accommodations seem like a hovel.


As love hotels have become more popular, luxury facilities have begun to pop up.  These might include jacuzzi tubs, mood lighting, and themes galore.




Planning ahead can be done if you’re looking for something specific.


The situation earlier portrayed refers to the typical love hotel experience.  If you put in your work beforehand you will be able to find some hotels that accept reservations. Look to pay a little more money but with that comes the privilege to choose your room beforehand as well as check in early.


If your girlfriend (or boyfriend for that matter) wants to spend a night in the ‘Hello Kitty’ themed room, nothing will be stopping her.  Lucky you.


If you are trying to book a rooms it is always handy to have someone around who speaks Japanese.  It is unlikely that the front desk staff will speak much English and the services aren’t catered to travelers so much as they’re catered to locals.


When To Go


Anytime.  Hotels are open year-round.  If you are looking to spend the night without a reservation, turn up around 9-10pm.  If you do have a reservation you will likely be able to check-in around 3pm.




Controlled climate of course.  At most hotels you will be able to control it.  At others you’re at the discretion of the hotel staff.


Getting There & Around


Hotels can be found wherever there is a densely populated area, particularly if that area has a large nightlife scene.


The Shibuya district of Tokyo has a more prevalent concentration of love hotels in a region deemed ‘love hotel hill’.  Access to the area can be reached by going west from Shibuya station.


Average Costs


Mid-range accommodations – $70 (weekdays)/$100 (weekends).




Book ahead for themed rooms.  Don’t expect the bondage or subway car themed rooms to be vacant for long.

Sleep in.  Don’t worry about some silly 9-10am checkout.  Typically you have until noon to vacate the premises.

Ask the cabbie.  If you haven’t booked anything simply hop into a cab and ask the driver to take you to a love hotel.  He knows where to go.



Come with a gang.  You will almost certainly be turned away if you come in with a large group of people.  The staff doesn’t want to deal with parties.

Mind the noise.  You might wind up hearing some r-rated sounds from the hallway as you walk to your room.  Enter your room.  All better.

Expect a view.  If there are windows they’ll be tiny and likely facing the building directly next door.

Fun Facts


The popularity of love hotels has spread across the border to countries such as South Korea and Thailand.

There are some 25,000 love hotels in Japan alone.

In a struggling Japanese economy love hotels have continued to thrive, boasting profits of somewhere in the area of $40 billion/year.

Don´t they have one- or two-hour hotels in Canada? I remember seeing a one in Montreal back in 2001. They actually had a condom vending machine at the hotel lobby and condoms where inside "egg shaped" plastic things. I was in this hotel with my friends and I remember someone laughing because we were staying in a one-hour hotel. That time I had no clue what these hotels were used for.
