This Tokyo hostel lets literature lovers bed down behind the bookshelves- Stylist

kacey here.

i went on a field trip with my son’s nursery school to holland park a couple of weeks ago. and i was in on a conversation that was way out of my realm. “yes, when i traveled the world several years ago, i just couldn’t leave tokyo. it’s my favorite city in the world.” “oh yes, how rude and loud do you feel as a westerner when you leave tokyo? it’s so serene.” “hands down, best city in the world!”

one thing i love about living where we live is how diverse and well-traveled everyone else seems to be. one of the things i have to balance in my own head while living where we live? is wanting to GO, SEE, DO everything. including tokyo.

needless to say, i found this little sneak peek into this tokyo hostel extra exciting and wanderlust-worthy…
