Love Hotels 11 Years, 12 Months ago Karma: 22  
Many Japanese people live at home with their parents until they get married.
There is also a percentage of the Japanese population who have secretive relationships for any number of reasons.
To cater for this, "Love Hotels" are very popular and very common.
A couple can book into a Love Hotel for as little or as much time as they wish and are only charged for the time they are there.. somewhat like a taxi!!
These hotels are VERY discreet!
We have made a video on Love Hotels that you can see here: http://www.metacafe.com/watch/2057648/love_hotel_in_japan/

I stayed in Love Hotels a few times
The room and bathroom are MUCH bigger than normal hotels and they have karaoke machines and DVD players and lots of other cool stuff you dont get in other hotels...
and they are cheaper!
One time a group of friends went together just to hang out and drink and watch music videos... it was a blast!!

I have a question: Can you possibly tell me why these places of ill repute are referred to as Love Hotels?... surely sex hotel would be a far more appropriate term.

Thank you.

Fair comment!
Made the same comment myself some time ago!

My friends tell me that, although they are often used for "insincere" activities they are also used by loving couple who just want to be alone.

And i guess "sex hotel" might spoil the romance sometimes!
