Love Hotels, like our Pink Love Rooms, are of Japanese origin.
Everything started in the early 20th century with the so called rooms yen-shuku (literally meaning « 1 yen rooms ») at a price of two yens for the whole night or at 1 yen for several hours in the day. However, after the war, most of these establishments would disappear.
After war and as a result of the Japanese economic miracle, hostels for sales representatives would emerge. These are also used from couples for a few hours, without overnight stay; therefore a reduced rate-system was introduced. With couples as target, these hostels are named tsurekomi yado (« hostels for accompanied clients »). Only in Tokyo, we can find almost 3000 in 1960. Often, due to lack of space in their own domiciles, legitimate or married couples use these hostels as well.
The term Love Hotel becomes general in the 70s. At that time these hostels were very much projected in order to attract clients. This is not today’s case. The Love Hotel is not only a place where women are lead to by men but also a place where couples go together. Furthermore, owners of Love Hotels have improved what they have to offer to women. Love Hotels, day hotels or hotels that are rented by the hour, are found nowadays all over the world.
Love Hotels at present
Love Hotel is a type of hotel that you could reserve by the hour (or sometimes overnight) and offers intimacy and discretion in order couples to get involved in intimate encounters. The rooms that are available for this reason are often themed, like our Oriental themed room (the rest of our rooms will be soon renovated), and decorated suitably, so that they satisfy all sorts of fantasies.
The Love Hotels’ clientele varies: from young people still living with their parents to lovers and mature couples.
