Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The idea of drifting off to sleep with a book is so comfortably ingrained in our minds it’s surprising it took so long for enterprising minds to marry accommodation with the world of books. ‘Book hotels’ are now finally a trend in Tokyo as well as several over cities worldwide. Book Tea Bed Ginza (actually located in neighbouring Shimbashi), with sister hotels in Shinjuku, Azabu-Juban and Izuoshima Island, puts its own spin on the concept by offering herbal teas to get you fully relaxed at bedtime, followed by organic bread for breakfast.
Single-person accommodation consists of two no-frills options, both equipped with hangers, night light and shelf, and curtained-off for privacy. ‘Standard style’ features a larger mattress and is designed for deeply immersed reading and quality of sleep. ‘Bookshelf style’ sleeping quarters, on the other hand, are positioned right up close to Book Tea Bed’s library of around 2,000 titles (including travel guides and other English-language books): from your bed, you can easily grab a handful of books to flip through as you doze off.
