Japanese Love Hotel Room Themes

10 Room Themes in Japanese Love Hotels

Between high rents in Japan and a cultural disposition toward living with parents, hourly rate hotels are not for the broke and sleazy. Instead they entice working locals, particularly young couples, while bewildering the rest of the world.

The love business got extra crazy this Summer when a resort town outside Tokyo targeted young men and their virtual girlfriends. But long before romance went virtually outrageous, love hotels were tangibly weird. Here are 10 actual themes in Japanese love hotels.

  • Hello Kitty S&M
  • Manga
  • Pirates
  • Space Odyssey
  • Gynecologist's office
  • Jungle
  • Titanic
  • Classroom
  • Under the sea
  • Office supply room

The one thing that continues to boggle my, and everyone else's, mind is the merging of cute innocence with sex. The author of a photo essay on love hotels says the Hello Kitty S&M room would "appeal to a girl’s [interest in] cuteness, and the S&M part of the room [appeals] to a man’s more sexual interests." If that's true, then it's awfully sexist. Maybe it appeals to the man's interest in cuteness!

Gyno's office is the opposite of a turn on. Ew. Hello Kitty S&M is completely creepy. I think that the quote from the article and the term from anon5 sum it up best--girls like cute stuff. GIRLS. I don't have many adult female friends who would find Hello Kitty S&M all that erotic.
