Next time you’re in Osaka – maybe visiting Universal Studios Japan’s Super Nintendo World – consider staying the night at Konjaku-so Bentencho Osaka Bay. The renovated 61-year-old house is spread over two floors, giving you plenty of space to chill out.

The accommodation is themed around water, since Benzaiten, the god of water, was widely worshipped in the local area. Inside, you’ll find a rock garden under glass embedded in the floor of the living room, with carefully raked gravel evoking flowing water. Then there’s the real highlight: a beautiful Japanese-style bathroom with its own light projection show.

The digital show sees nine different images projected onto the water’s surface, such as swimming koi, bubbles, fireworks and more. Plus, it’s all yours to enjoy, so you can even take a dip while the virtual fish swim around you.

The living room area on the first floor boasts a large home theatre equipped with Amazon Prime and Netflix, while a massive screen in the neighbouring room comes with a Nintendo Switch and – crucially – four controllers.
