Inside Japanese Love Hotels
Love Hotels have long been an institution in Japan. They are short-stay accommodations that can be rented by the hour or overnight stays, a convenient stay for sexual encounters and quick hook-ups. They are uniquely designed for people of different tastes and fetishes. These hotels include themed rooms to cater for all kinds of role-plays and fetishes.
Are these hotels actually real or are they some urban legend? For people who haven’t had a chance to go to Japan and experience it first hand, photographer Misty Keasler has documented some of these rooms around Japan’s many Love Hotels. Following are a few examples of photographs from her series ‘Love Hotels: The Hidden Fantasy Rooms of Japan’ inside Japanese Love Hotels.
