Steve Mansfield does not like the phrase love hotels. He prefers "leisure hotels", pointing out that what goes on in his premises happens in every other hotel in the world.
Whatever they are called, Japan's short stay hotels remain busy with customers.
The Japanese may have cut back on many things in the downturn - but not on a few hours to spend alone with a loved one.

Japan's Love Hotels
A quick link here to a BBC report of love hotels in Japan. Apparently despite their recession many are visiting the love hotels. I thought it would be a good read considering there are many parallels to Korean love hotels when you read the article. Although I have yet to see some hotels out here with touch screens at the entrance.
