Need a few hours of alone time with that special someone? Then you should visit a ridiculously named love hotel.
The Japanese website goo ranking conducted a survey to determine Japan’s funniest love hotel names and the results are in!
|Care for a rest?|
The survey was published on January 2nd and is based on the answers of 250 mean and 250 women. The total amount of love hotels on the list is 49. However, because much of the humor in these names gets lost in translation in this article we’ll be looking at the top 5, plus some of the strangest and most humorous entries from the bottom 44. So, without further ado, let’s get started with number 37.
37. Hide and Seek Club
(かくれんぼクラブ – kakurenbo kurabu)
Karatsu City, Saga Prefecture
(Pinkのおもち – Pink no omochi)
Akita City, Akita Prefecture
I hope pink mochi doesn’t cause people to choke to death like the regular kind.
31. Naughty Kitten
(やんちゃな子猫 – yancha na koneko)
Abeno Ward, Osaka City, Osaka Prefecture
26. Capricious Ponytail

Naha City, Okinawa Prefecture
Those capricious ponytails always get me in the mood.
26. Daytime Friend
(おひるのともだち – ohiru no tomodachi)
Ikuno Ward, Osaka City, Osaka Prefecture
As in, the “friend” you can only see during the day because you have to go home to spend the night with your spouse.
23. Pink Piglet
(ピンクの子豚 – pinku no kobuta)
Kochi City, Kochi Prefecture
No better place for porking.
23. Hello Clown
(もしもしピエロ – moshi moshi piero)
Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture and other locations
Nothing sexier than a clown.
22. Santa’s House
(サンタの家 – santa no ie)
Miyazaki City, Miyazaki Prefecture
No… not in Santa’s house…
19. Tanuki LAND
(たぬきＬＡＮＤ – tanuki LAND)
Okinawa City, Okinawa Prefecture
that tanuki (raccoon dogs) are often depicted as having large
testicles, I can’t help but think this is a reference to testicles…
17. Legend of the Ignorance Feigning Beaver
(おとぼけビーバー伝説 – otoboke biibaa densetsu)
Moriyama City, Shiga Prefecture
Don’t you hate it when beavers feign ignorance?
15. Yes We Can

Thank you Obama.
14. Yellow Banana
(黄色いバナナ kiiroi banana)
Fukuyama City, Hiroshima Prefecture
9. North Africa 北アフリカ kita afurika
Kita Ward, Osaka City, Osaka Prefecture
So much sexier than South Africa.
5. The 101st Proposal
(１０１回目のプロポーズ – hyakuikkaime no puropoozu)
Kurashiki City, Okayama Prefecture
That many proposals seems like it might qualify as harassment…
5. Study Room
(べんきょう部屋 bekyo heya)
Amagasaki City, Osaka Prefecture
Great for those that need to brush up on their human anatomy.
4. The Demon Bag of the Raging Tanuki
(暴れたぬきの鬼袋 – abare tanuki no oni fukuro)
Naniwa Ward, Osaka City, Osaka Prefecture
If “demon bag” isn’t a reference to testicles then I don’t know what is.
3. It’s a Hotel Yooo!
(ホテルだぞぉー hoteru da zooo)

Think of this as the love hotel version of “Who’s on First?.”

in, “So… you wanna go to a love hotel?” Both subtle and direct at the same time. While not the funniest name on the list, it is definitely
one of the more clever ones. If you’d like to see this hotel’s website you can check it out here. They have a nice “equipment” page.
1. Banana and Donut
(バナナとドーナツ – banana to donatsu)
Ogi City, Saga Prefecture

I have nothing to add, the name speaks for itself. And yes, that is their real logo that you see in the upper left of the screenshot you see above.

So there you go, now you know the funniest love hotel names in Japan. Hopefully, you were able to find one that you can visit next time you go to Japan, even if it’s just to be able to say that you stayed there. Don’t worry, these hotels all offer overnight stays as well and usually their rates are very reasonable. In fact, many times they are cheaper than a regular hotel. Plus, you can take advantage of all their special amenities!
