Trunk House, Japan

Located on a secluded backstreet in Tokyo’s Kagurazaka neighborhood, the incredibly unique Trunk House offers a hyperlocal immersion within a one-suite micro-hotel. The hotel is housed in a wooden building that was previously a traditional Ryotei restaurant and geisha practice room.

One additional (and drool-worthy) detail: there’s a private chef on hand to create anything from local Japanese dishes to formal French cuisine.
