Trunk(House)

Dec 6, 2019

By Chris Schalkx.

Shinjuku’s hipster honeypot Trunk(Hotel) has expanded, with its second outpost taking over a former geisha house along a cobblestone alley in Kagurazuka, Tokyo’s “little Kyoto.” Matching traditional tatami floors, a genkan-style entryway and a hinoki-wood bathtub with Charles Eames furnishings and Noguchi lights, this one-room boutique stay is a designer’s daydream.
