Sure, Tokyo’s got more hotels than we can count, but how many are there featuring rooms floating on water? Petals Tokyo is a set of four houseboats that have been turned into a boutique hotel. The venue is run by Warehouse Terrada and is on the water off Tennozu Isle, Tokyo’s warehouse district turned art neighbourhood.
Petals Tokyo is a welcoming addition to the area, giving guests an opportunity to explore the up-and-coming district, which is home to brewpub TY Harbour, the colourful stationery store Pigment, lots of street art murals and much more.
The hotel is designed like the houseboats found in the canals of Amsterdam, each with their own unique design and concept. Currently, Petals Tokyo consists of four stationary houseboats anchored along the Tennozu Canal. Each can fit up to two guests and features a private washroom, sofa, dining table, desk, TV and, of course, waterfront views. There are also plenty of amenities including a humidifier, a coffee maker, and more to keep you comfortable during your stay.
The hotel is within walking distance of Tennozu Park as well as Shinagawa Station, making it an easy base to explore the rest of the city. Rooms start at ¥80,000 per night (including breakfast) and you can make a reservation through Booking.com.
