Kyoichi Tsuzuki – LOVE HOTEL
The Japanese love hotels of the 20th century were typified by garish, over-the-top, bizarre designs and features. Due to stricter laws and morality codes, the 2000s were an era when the notorious love hotels, along with their unique retro charm, were rapidly vanishing from the Japanese cityscape. Kyoichi Tsuzuki explores the fascination of this lingering cultural heritage through a selection of carefully chosen and photographed rooms, guiding the curious through the highly inventive and playful interiors of this titillating typology.
