An Accommodating Bookshop?

If you are a book lover and are fortunate enough to visit Japan, you might want to consider a stay in an accommodation bookshop. 

The Book and Bed Hostel, centrally located in Tokyo and Kyoto, features semi-private sleeping nooks built right into the bookshelves.  With rates starting at 4,445 yen ($53 CAN) per night, everything is set up dorm style with shared bathrooms.  Each sleeping nook has a personal lamp, a privacy curtain, luggage space under the bed, clothes hanger, and power outlets.  Wi-Fi is free.

Apparently there are about 5,000 Japanese and English books from which to choose.  Unfortunately, they can’t be purchased on site.
