Love the library so much you don’t want to leave?

I can sympathize.

In the off chance any of you are planning (or planning on planning) a trip to Japan, consider a somewhat less traditional capsule hotel experience—Book and Bed Tokyo. At an affordable 28 to 36 USD per night, this self-described hostel allows guests to fulfill fantasies of bunking overnight in a library.

According to Book and Bed’s website:

“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’.

“It is already 2 am but you think just a little more… with heavy drooping eye lids you continue reading only to realize you have fallen asleep.”

Books are available (for borrowing, not buying) in both English and Japanese.
