* In the Funcom MMO ''Videogame/TheSecretWorld'', players naturally end up encountering one of these when they finally get around to visiting Tokyo. Located in one of Kaidan District's seedier regions, the Dream Palace serves as the final location of Issue #10, and as the sole remaining employee explains, they can easily accommodate just about any fetish their customers might exhibit. Not that you get to enjoy their services - after all, even if player characters weren't all strictly business, the [[ApocalypseHow current]] [[CosmicHorrorStory state]] [[GhostCity of Kaidan]] doesn't exactly offer up a generous supply of romantic partners. Closer investigation reveals that a private detective was keeping the place monitored so he could blackmail wealthy businessmen caught with their pants down; the hotel itself is secretly owned by [[spoiler: the Phoenician Brotherhood]]; and of course, the AV suite has been impregnated with the living memories of [[spoiler: [[MouthOfSauron the Black Signal]] [[FromNothingToNightmare back when he was still human]].]] Oh, and the final mission of Issue #10 involves you paying a visit to that particular room and experiencing [[GoMadFromTheRevelation the last romantic encounter that occurred there]].

* The 'Love Hotel' Emoji 🏩 [[http://emojipedia.org/love-hotel/]] Is usually portrayed as a pink building with a heart or an 'H' on it. However, some Western users may mistake this for a 'Hospital'emoji or a 'get well soon' symbol.

Japan is crowded. Japan is expensive (well, Tokyo's expensive, and [[CreatorProvincialism nowhere else counts]], right?[[note]]Actually, the rest of the country really isn't a ''lot'' better as far as property prices go; see the Anime and Manga section of FriendsRentControl.[[/note]]). As a result, even if you're of age to engage in certain physical activities, you probably don't have any private space in which to do that and not get caught. You may even be living with your parents, which is a [[ParentsWalkInAtTheWorstTime whole other level of uncomfortable]]. Even if you can manage a rendez-vous, your six-''tatami'', underlighted, cluttered room with the one-person futon isn't likely to inspire romance. And unlike your North American counterparts, you likely don't own [[AutoErotica a car]] and only advanced, highly acrobatic positions tend to be possible on a bicycle, even with the kickstand down.

* In ''Film/CityOfGod'', the big robbery by the Trio Ternura occurs in the Brazilian equivalent (a cross between the Japanese and Western ones; it is outside the titular slum, but built for a specific purpose - including mirrored ceilings). There is a humourous moment where one of the gang members walks into one of the rooms and tries to figure out exactly what and how the several people occupying the bed are doing.

* The book ''Japan-Think, Ameri-Think'', which analyzes cultural differences between the two nations, relates a story about two American businessmen who checked into one and then spent a while ordering beers while occasionally calling the front desk to let the staff know they were "available". [[LateToTheRealization Eventually]] they figured out that it was ''not'', in fact, a brothel, and the two men slunk away with the embarassing realization that the staff [[MistakenForGay thought they rented the room for themselves]].

* In ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'', [[SnakePeople Miia]] drags Kimihito into one. He's terribly embarrassed, but before they can do anything, the place gets stormed by a SWAT team, since InterspeciesRomance is illegal at this point in the series.

* In Juzo Itami's ''A Taxing Woman'' the heroine gets a line on the bad guy's criminal empire by auditing the bedsheets and laundry at one of these. Also, the theme rooms depicted have to be seen to be believed. Tese hotels are even clearly visible in real life from the Narita Express train (or at least they were back in 1995).

* A DeletedScene from ''RockosModernLife'' from Heffer and Rocko's RoadTrip involve the pair stopping at a "No Tell Motel", with the attendant first saying they're full before a ding comes from behind him. "Oh, looks like we have an early departure!" He also expresses admiration at the pair wanting the room for a full night.

* A Western example on ''TheGoldenGirls'': In one episode Blanche tries to seduce a man who wants an [[LetsWaitAwhile old-fashioned romance]] by luring him to one of these. It is island-themed, and full of remote-controlled features clearly designed for kinky sex.
