When you enter the hotel, you'll immediately see books lined up in the lobby. Each shelf is organized with its own different theme, with a wide variety of books gathered. There, you will find not only novels, essays, and other books, but also a manga section. Also, in October of 2022 a bar opened on the first floor, where you can get lost in the world of books with a drink in your hand.
Books are arranged on each floor according to a concept, such as "Rush back to that time of youth," "Think, think, think," "Business books galore," etc. The lineup carefully selected by the staff of Book Hotel Jimbocho range greatly from that high profile new work to masterpieces renowned among only those in the know. It might be nice to try a genre that you haven't read up to now.
All 32 guest rooms are spacious, with a minimum floor space of 23 square meters. The hotel regularly holds events in collaboration with anime and manga, displaying reproductions of original artwork in guest rooms and providing related books, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the works. Depending on the program, there may also be novelty presents.
If you stay overnight, we definitely want you to try the Book Matching Service. Answer an online survey by 10 p.m. two days before your stay, and hotel staff will prepare books just for you based on your answers. Also, we recommend the Book Pairing service, where with a 500 yen additional fee on top of the cost of accommodation, they provide you with the book, a drink and snack that pair with the book. You may take this book home with you.
