Cool Sites : Love Hotels

Monday, November 8, 2004 Posted: 09:21 PM JST

My recommendations for cool sites tend to be a bit serious. Today we break that rule with a listing of sites of or about love hotels. That term is out-of-date though. These days they are called 'fashion hotels' or 'boutique hotels'. Enjoy!

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
