Located in the commercial and entertainment hub of Ikebukuro in Northwest Tokyo, the Book and Bed hostel is a self-described “accommodation bookshop” that offers visitors a cozy space to relax and read the night away before falling into a blissfull sleep. Designed by Makoto Tanijiri and Ai Yoshida, this unique concept may not be everyone’s idea of relaxation, but the 1,700 (and expanding) Japanese and English book collection curated by Shibuya Publishing & Booksellers offers a unique environment to unwind from the daily grind of Tokyo without the use of digital means, although they do offer free WiFi. You can take comfort in the lounge area alongside other book lovers, or curl up in one of the bookshelves that are outfitted with a mattress, light and power. The hostel is complete with showers and a communal bathroom so freshening up after a good night’s rest is no problem. Priced at ¥3,500 JPY (approximately $29 USD) for the ‘Compact’ bookshelf and ¥4,500 JPY (approximately $37 USD) for the ‘Standard’ bookshelf, get more information at the Book and Bed website.
