When I first came across this hotel, I was immediately attracted to its unique and modern interior, along with the high-tech rooms and beautiful rooftop. Having the pleasure of staying here for a couple of nights, I truly got to experience the hospitality this hotel has to offer. Here, let me share with you my experience at Slash Kawasaki and why you might want to consider visiting this hotel for your next vacation in Kawasaki, Japan.
What is Slash Kawasaki?
The hotel is named / (slash) because of the symbol’s beautifully simple form, yet a character used in everyday life for a wide variety of meanings, including date, division, abbreviation and parallelism.
The range of its use has expanded with the changing times, and since the advent of the internet it has been used to delimit hierarchies in URLs, and its shape itself is even used as an emoticon in emails.
Inspired by the simple, beautiful, diverse and familiar / (slash), Slash Hotel offers a hotel that is flexible, simple, multifunctional and playful in accordance with the changing times, without being bound by the common sense and customs of hotels, to create a unique stay that cannot be found anywhere else.

The hotel’s compact but unconventional spatial design and technology-enhanced functional design create a stay full of surprises and discoveries, despite the low rates. Single rooms for budget travellers and twin rooms for two people or a family.
The beds in the rooms recline electrically. A single remote control allows you to switch between bed mode and sofa mode. The mattresses are pocket coil mattresses made by Serta, which has the largest market share in North America.

There is a large storage space under the bed. You can also use it as simple drawer storage by placing your suitcases inside with the suitcases open.
