Japan boasts an abundance of dream destinations for art lovers, from the remote art islands of Setouchi to spectacular city-centre museums like teamLab Borderless. Recently, however, some cities have even expanded their art scene into the domain of accommodation. Gone are the days when you’d have to visit a gallery or museum to view a prized art collection – now you can stay in well-curated hotel rooms that double as exhibition spaces.
Rather than having floors after floors of cookie-cutter rooms, these art hotels feature thoughtfully designed, one-of-a-kind suites created by local and international artists. Far more than just being a place to rest your head after a big day of sightseeing, these unique lodgings are attractions in and of themselves. If it’s art you’re after, look no further than these splendid immersive hotels.
