Love Origami? This New Airbnb in Harajuku is Perfect for You!

New origami-themed Airbnb opens in Harajuku, combining traditional and kawaii culture.



Asobi System's MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON project aims to spread and promote Harajuku's kawaii pop culture throughout the world. It appears that their first attempt to do so through lodging last year with a sakura-themed penthouse Airbnb in the heart of Harajuku was quite the success, as the organization is now adding on a new origami-themed room that looks just as colorful and inviting.

The new MOSHI MOSHI ROOMS: ORIGAMI is much like its cherry blossom counterpart in that it takes a popular and beautiful aspect of Japanese culture, and finds away to naturally fuse it with Harajuku subculture that allows visitors to enjoy the best of both traditional and modern Japan in a unique lodging experience.




The living room is equipped with benches and stools to reflect a Japanese tea house, as well as a number of beautifully traditional Japanese umbrellas dangling from the ceiling. Set in the room are popular origami designs, such as cranes, as well as paper fans.

The bedroom features colorful sliding doors made even prettier by seeping sunlight, and especially comfortable futons recreate a traditional Japanese countryside inn experience in Tokyo.

The stairway itself incorporates an origami theme.

The building's roof area has an open space for relaxing and taking in views of the surrounding Harajuku area.




Because of the setup and theme, the room is quite a bit more expensive than other Airbnb's (the reservation cites it at 28,000 yen per guest with a maximum occupancy of six), but for those looking for a unique lodging experience tapping into both traditional Japanese culture and modern kawaii aesthetic, this may be the best option--aside from the Sakura room one floor above it.
