On December 24th of 2015 the DAIDO MORIYAMA X ROCK STAR HOTEL opened in Osaka, Japan.

This six floor hotel has been outfitted entirely with the photography of famed Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama.  In addition to a suite and single rooms, there is a party room in which to relax with friends. No doubt this will be a popular destination for Moriyama fans when visiting his hometown of Osaka.  More pictures and information (in Japanese) can be seen here.

This hotel remodel is a venture between gallery owner and book publisher Akio Nagisawa and digital-publisher Plexus, which oversaw the creation and implementation of the interior design. A sixteen minute talk event with Moriyama and Nagasawa can be seen on the hotel's Youtube channel below. (Japanese only)

Rates, reservations, and further information can be found on the hotel's website:  Rock Star Hotel
