The Book and Bed Tokyo, with outlets in Ikebukuro, Shinjuku and Asakusa, is packed with thousands of books. Wood-panelled capsules create a cosy ambience – perfect for catching up on that tome you’ve been meaning to read. And fans of minimalist brand Muji will be pleased to know it opened its flagship hotel in Ginza in April, with a retail space dedicated to books on art, travel, culture and more.
For pop culture fans
At the Hotel Gracery Shinjuku, you can stay in a Godzilla View room, where a giant replica of the monster’s head perched on the eighth-floor patio peers into your room. Hello Kitty fans can’t do better than Keio Plaza Hotel. They’ve pulled out the stops for two themed rooms here, where the likeness of the world’s most famous mouthless cat can be seen on dolls, toiletries and even the kettle.
