[l] love hotel
i am totally fascinated with these places. love hotels. not that i have ever been in one. seriously. but part of me wants to go. and the other part of me screams. no. no. no. love hotels. there are a lot of them. and are quite easy to find. they usually have funny names. hotel jazz. hotel teddy bear. hotel autobahn. just crazy names. and there is quite a bit of secrecy involved. no windows. covered parking garages. there is an area near here. near a big highway interchange. that has about thirty love hotels. so much neon is there. i think it must be the capitol of love hotels. the main reason for love hotels is for those guys and gals who still live at home. and they need somewhere to. you know. have sex. it's not uncommon for kids to live at home well into their twenties. and sometimes their thirties. and they just don't have any privacy. so some smart guy came up with the whole love hotel concept. where you can rent a room by the hour. or the night. whatever you fancy. and some people are making a lot of money. a friend once told me that love hotels are the number 1 industry in japan. i don't believe that. but i do think they are a big industry. and am so curious about it. and thought it would be a great thing to study. for a thesis. seriously.
