Have you ever had the desire to sleep in a library? Well, your dreams just might be coming true. This is not a trick! If you love to read, then get ready!
Calling all nerds, books, and the bed is where it’s at. All ideas of what a hotel should look like are being transformed into something cozy. Instead of bleached sheets and bright lights, a softly lit library accommodation setting is getting attention. Tokyo is changing the way we enjoy over-night stays.
In the Ikebukuro district, the best place to be in Northwest Tokyo, architects, Ai Yoshia and Makoto Tanijiri establish the Book and Bed design. Inside, the bunks are structured with shelves and equipped with reading lights. Over 1700 English and Japanese books are available for enjoyment.
As far as sleeping arrangements go, there are 12 compartments, accessed by a ladder. No, the ladder is not to acquired high place books.
Bet you think this place is expensive, huh? Well, a small bunk is only $40 AUD, and a larger one goes for $50. That’s not too bad considering you are in the heart of the Tokyo metropolis! Come enjoy a book and a nap, and no the books aren’t for sale just yet. Maybe soon!
