Although things haven’t totally gone back to “normal” yet, little by little the global scenario starts to reopen again. Even if many countries still don’t allow international tourism, they are promoting “staycations”.
If you are a resident in Japan planning on taking a break from the routine, take a look at these brand-new boutique hotels that will make you live an unforgettable experience.
1. Toggle Hotel
Located in Suidobashi and designed by Klein Dytham Architecture, the Toggle Hotel is a splash of color with its two-tone bedrooms. Far from a minimalist color palette, the acommodation emanates an energetic vibe perfect for travellers looking to recharge their energy. The Toggle is also an excellent alternative for remote workers thanks to the functional furniture that can work as desks or as coffee tables as well.
Also known as Bed and Art Project, includes boutique hotels and Airbnbs that feature local artworks. Japanese artists are given a space to decorate and in return they receive a share of the room’s booking profit. Each facility offers an unique experience.
Last in our list is the Kaika Hotel in Tokyo’s Sumida Ward designed by The Share Hotels, which transformed Kaika from an old warehouse to the budget boutique acommodation that is today. What makes it stand out is the shared public spaces that make the guest immerse in the local culture.
Kaika also features art galleries and similar Japanese goods that are available for purchase, like traditional Japanese craft dishware and rentals of the stylish Tokyobike brand.
