If you love art and design, you’ll enjoy the innovative design of the Kiyosumi Shirakawa LYURO hotel—a 1988 office building redesigned and repurposed. Its post-modern design elements from the designer Rikki Sato include pieces from the Memphis Collective such as the Sottsass furniture of Shiro Kuramata, which spark memories of the time when the building came into existence. The building’s interior boasts a vibrant blue that wakes one up and gives the interior a personality that sets it aside from other hotels. Explore the Kiyosumi Shirakawa area’s galleries and art shops, then return to this hotel with its stimulating design. Bask in the sun while looking out over the Sumida River and the Kiyosu Bridge.
