The Love Hotel

"Love" Hotel- the  name says it all.  Many young adults live at home. Most Japanese apartments have thin walls.  For these and other reasons- love hotels are private, discreet, and reasonably priced- such establishments do a roaring trade. The hotels have shuttered bays for guests' vehicles, as the top photo of the Queen shows. Between the hours of 6pm and 1am, the Queen's room charge is 2,000 yen, approx. $20.  The real bargain is the overnight stay, which is 4,500 yen between the hours of 11pm and 10am-weekdays only
