Business booming at Japan’s corpse hotel

21 September 2011

A corpse hotel in Japan is proving a big success as bereaved relatives flock to check in deceased loved ones during the wait for busy crematoriums.

The Lastel, in a suburb of Yokohama, offers 18 refrigerated coffins for dead guests at a daily rate of 12,000 yen (£98).

The profits being reaped at the ”half-way morgue” reflect a booming death industry in the country, where 1.2m people died in 2010 – up 55,000 on the previous year.
