At Book and Bed Tokyo, you can fall asleep with any of the books the hostel has. Or manga, if you prefer those.

According to Inside Games, hostel Book and Bed Tokyo was built with idea that this is a bookstore you can sleep at. The books aren’t actually for sale, but during your stay, you can pull whatever you want off the shelves, curl up in your little bed, read and fall asleep.
