Niche-interest capsule hotels and themed accommodation are becoming more common in Tokyo in recent years, and you'll find everything from a hotel staffed by robots to a hostel repurposed from train compartments. More interestingly, there's a growing selection of accommodation catering to bibliophiles. So if you often find yourself staying up until the wee hours of the morning engrossed in a good read, you'd love these unique bookstore-themed accommodations.
Resembling a library or bookstore, these book-hotels have stocked their shelves with all sorts of reading materials from manga and glossy magazines to artistic coffee-table tomes. Most of which even have a small collection of English-language titles. Don't need an overnight stay? That's okay – many of these hotels also double as hangout spots for guests who's just looking for a few hours of peace and quiet to do some reading.
