A 'corpse' hotel has opened in Japan to house dead bodies

A corpse hotel has been set up in Japan to relieve overcrowding in its crematoriums.

More than 110,000 people died in Tokyo in 2014 but the city has only 26 crematoriums in operation, so dead bodies are now being taken to Sousou - a hotel facility based in Kanagawa, which keeps the bodies in pristine condition for up to four days.
