Japanska One Dollar Hotell har två rum för bara en dollar natten men det finns en hake – du blir filmad hela tiden.

När rummen inte filmas så filmas hotellets ägare, Tetsuya Inoue, och det han gör på jobbet. Det är bara bild, inget ljud och kameran når inte in på toaletten så det finns restriktioner för hur närgånget det blir.

”Young people nowadays don’t care much about the privacy,” Inoue adds. ”Some of them say it’s OK to be [watched] for just one day.”
And while the $1 rooms are clearly a loss leader, Inoue is thinking beyond the cost of a single night’s stay. The YouTube channel has already passed 1,000 subscribers. Once it accumulates more than 4,000 view hours, he will be able to put ads on the channel and monetize it.
On days when the room is vacant or no one is streaming, Inoue will post a livestream of himself working in the ryokan’s office. Signs in Japanese and English are posted in front of the camera to let viewers know when he’s out of the room.
