The Micro Museum Hostel Ueno: A New Conceptual Hostel With a Gallery

09.February.2019 | SPOT

The Micro Museum Hostel Ueno is set to open this month in Arakawa, Tokyo.

The hostel aims to give guests an elevated accommodation experience that goes beyond simply having them sleep there for the night. It is located in Uguisudani which despite its station connecting to both the Yamanote Line and Keihin-Tōhoku Line, has a sort of nostalgic feeling to it like that of a close-knit town. The number of tourists visiting there has been on the rise in recent years as it is close to Ueno and Negishi.

 

As its name suggests, the hostel is home to a small museum. It was designed by Ryo Mitsui who created it so that different coloured lights shed through the outside. The entrance inside will be displayed with artwork from up-and-coming artists that will change each month.

 

The hostel hopes to bring in not just guests to see the museum but locals too to tie everyone to art.

The inside is minimalist yet stylish. It caters to different needs with its room variations including rooms for 2, rooms for 4 and more.

 

Take advantage of your overnight stay to experience something new by booking with The Micro Museum Hostel Ueno.
