They identified themselves as “an accommodation bookshop” and best place to falling asleep while reading or maybe you will read so much and you can’t find to sleep.
Bookstore themed hotel designed by Makoto Tanijiri and Ai Yoshida of Suppose Design Office and located in Ikebukuro neighborhood.
Let’s listen their story from themselves:
“Book And Bed is “an accommodation bookshop”
The perfect setting for a good nights sleep is something you will not find here. There are no comfortable mattresses, fluffy pillows nor lightweight and warm down duvets.
What we do offer is an experience while reading a book (or comic book).
An experience shared by everyone at least once : the blissful “instant of falling asleep”
Our concept is thus a readers haven – an accommodation bookshop.
With books as our central theme, we decided to create a hostel offering the greatest “moment of sleep”.
They have 1.700 English and Japanese Language books, but they planned to expand their capacity over 3000.
The Book and Bed Hotel has 18 Bunk, sleeping places that looks like typical Japanese capsule hotel.
