Business Hotel

Today we arrived at Osaka. We are staying in a business hotel. I’m quite glad that this is the only one we will be staying in during this trip. I have never been in one before and I wasn’t really impressed. The western style rooms are dowdy and small. Small I was expecting – this is Japan after all – but dowdy isn’t good.

One strange thing the room did have was a TV with a coin slot. If you wanted to watch the TV it cost 100 Yen for 60 minutes. If you wanted to watch the porn channel it cost 600 Yen for 60 minutes. Quite an ingenious way to ensure that your viewing habits never appear on a hotel receipt.
