Love hotels try to pose as their less sexy brethren


Ever walked into a hotel for a regular stay and realized you ended up in a cheap love hotel for an afternoon tryst?

Yeah, me too.

Apparently a new trend is building in Japan wherein love hotels attempt to pose as regular hotels in order to escape the more stringent laws and regulations imposed on them. One such regulation notes that love hotels must be a certain distance from schools in order to prevent children from seeing something that cannot be unseen.

The Group to Remove Fake Love Hotels Nationwide has been started in order to combat the trickery of these "fake love hotels," and with good reason. Over 3,600 "fake love hotels" have been discovered throughout the country by the National Police Agency.  

But just in case you're in doubt as to whether or not you ended up in a love hotel, here's a few hints. First of all, if you never see the staff and paid for your room via vending machine, you're probably in a love hotel. Also, if the hotel's payment rates are based on hourly stays and not per night, you're also probably in a love hotel. Leave unless you're with a hooker or your girlfriend, lest you be exposed to a great many disturbing things.

I'm kind of glad there's going to be a bigger crackdown on these fakes. As a potential tourist, the last thing I'd want to happen is to accidentally walk into one of these places and witness something super awkward and eye-gouge worthy.
