The BnA Hotel Tokyo is an innovative new concept that blends art and hospitality. The "BnA" portion of the hotel's name stands for the Bed and Art Project, which seeks to immerse travelers in the work of local artists. The unique new approach to hospitality is heavily influenced by the locavore movement, while it also aims to make finding affordable accommodations in Tokyo a little easier.

The BnA Hotel Tokyo is essentially an art gallery available to rent as an accommodation option, with it now being available for booking on P2P lodgings platform Airbnb. The Bed and Art Project's facilities include a mixture of permanent wall murals and temporary exhibitions from local artists. The BnA Hotel Tokyo's first independent location features breathtaking murals from artists such as Ryuichi Ogino and Yohei Takahashi.
