Description

No other country has an institution quite like the Japanese love hotel. Hotels where couples can rent heavily decorated rooms by the hour for amorous liaisons, these spaces are steeped in fantasy with rooms ranging from semi-tasteful, romantic bathrooms to bedrooms equipped for almost any imaginable pornographic scenario.

This book shows various delightful and disturbing rooms from hotels in Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto, as well as entries from the hotel guest books (comments like "So many handcuffs!" and "If I am stared in the eye by dogs as well as babies, I feel a bit funny"). From these the reader gleans that the unbelievable popularity in Japan of the Hello Kitty character extends to its S&M-themed presence in Osaka's Hotel Adonis, the expressionless outsize white cat's head seeming curiously suited to these adult games. Other treats include plastic food in a room service display, a "cathedral-style party room" and 'Gulliver's Refrigerator', the most obscene-looking household appliance I have ever seen. The mingling of public and private here is really quite singular, and this book's contents will lubricate your mind well into the night.
