Stay in this Japan hotel for Rs 66 per night but there is catch to it
New Delhi : For all those budget travellers who like to spend less on their stay, here is an offer for you if you are travelling to Japan anytime soon.
A hotel is offering an affordable room for just 100 yen that is equivalent to Rs 66 per day and a small cost of privacy.
Asahi Ryokan in Fukuoka, Japan, offers travellers an option to stay in Room No 8 for just 100 yens if the guest agrees to only one condition that his/her stay will be live-streamed.
According to Insider, the deal is available around the year for the typical Japanese-style room that comes with a foldable sleeping mat, a TV and a small coffee table. The only irregularity in the room is a tablet with a camera pointing to the middle of the room, allowing for no blind spots.
The live stream is broadcasted on the YouTube channel One Dollar Hotel.
While the relief is that the guests in the room are allowed to switch off the lights during their stay but with that, there will be complete blindness. The stream is also video-only, which means phone calls and conversations will remain private.
While most of us are excited to know about the washroom, it has been kept way away from the range of camera and can be used privately by the guests.
CNN reports that the idea of live streaming hotel guests came to 27-year-old Tetsuya Inoue, whose grandmother owns the hotel when they hosted a British YouTuber who live-streamed most of his stay.
"This is a very old ryokan and I was looking into a new business model," Mr Inoue says. "Our hotel is on the cheaper side, so we need some added value, something special that everyone will talk about."
