MANGA ART HOTEL, TOKYO is a new hostel that opened in the Jinbōchō district of Chiyoda on 1st February 2019. Its theme is “the hotel that never sleeps” and its interior is decorated with manga. On 28th January, the hostel held a special event that introduced the public to the hostel’s interior. Today, we’ll be having a nosey around!

Grand bookcases spread throughout the manga space, housing 5,000 carefully selected manga. Bed units are positioned freely, and there are many cuddly spaces for guests to enjoy. In order to avoid the overcrowded feeling that a capsule hotel would have, large furniture was installed to make maximum usage of the space and give it a larger sense of depth.
Even the tone of the flooring was well thought out when the hostel was designed. In order to make the manga look even better, a light pink floor with basic white undertones was chosen to match the coloured prints of the manga. The bookcase was also designed specifically for housing manga. The dimensions of each shelf were designed according to standard manga sizes and were crafted with accuracy to the nearest millimetre.
The pure brass sheet designs on the ceiling are not just to accent the look of the interior; but they reflect the image of the manga on the top shelves, causing them to glisten whilst also making the area look more spacious. As these are suspended from the ceiling by a wire, guests are free to change the angle that they reflect light. Shaking the brass plates slightly allows guests to look at the manga on the top shelves – just like in an art museum. The brass plates were installed with the intention that guests bond closer with the manga that they choose, creating a comfortable environment of busy colours.
The cosy sleeping spaces are not to big nor too small and are fully equipped with a dimmable light, hangers, a locker for your valuables, plug sockets and free WiFi.
The counter at the entrance is a fluorescent yellow and white acrylic board nestled in the public zone and illuminates the area.
The walls and ceiling of the utility zone are both white to complement the pure wooden flooring. The feeling of warmth and cleanliness here perfectly portrays the image of a typical Japanese home design.
This hostel was designed with incredible attention to detail – there is so much to enjoy from its interior looks to the manga. You are bound to be too busy daydreaming to even sleep here – so how about popping over?
