TOKYO -- It has become a habit for Akihiro Doi, 26, to take a break on his business trips by treating himself at an izakaya restaurant and a sento public bath just steps away from his favorite hotel. 

As a big fan of Sekai Hotel Fuse, remodeled from an abandoned house and located on a market street in a small district in Higashi-Osaka, Doi has enjoyed his more than 30 stays since he first used the accommodation in late 2018.
