This Floating Japanese Boutique Hotel Is The Best Place In The World To Read A Book

The Guntû is a minimalist boutique hotel that floats along the Seto Inland Sea. Guests are invited to book one of its nineteen rooms for an incredibly peaceful and well-curated tour of the little islands dotting the sea.

Guntû was designed by architect Yasushi Horibe and is named after little blue crabs found in the region there. The crabs are a local favorite for miso soup broth and the ship designers hope their floating hotel will soon be as popular.

Speaking of food, booking some time aboard this ship ensures you'll eat well.

The menu is designed daily to reflect the mood of the passengers, weather, and of course, seasonal availability of local ingredients. All meals are incredibly fresh and the chef will even prepare little bento box lunches if you want to spend the afternoon exploring onshore.

The top deck is probably the best part of this minimalist cruise ship hotel. Natural wood floors line the entire deck and partitions separate lounge areas with woven natural rug seating. The mountainous views are incredible and the setting is perfect for long hours spent reading or chatting with friends.

Of course, you can always order tea or beer from the bar nearby. The Guntû is definitely bucket list material, don't you think?
