Students' dorm room turned into traditional Japanese bar

Four university students in Beijing decorated their dormitory room in izakaya style, greatly amusing Chinese netizens.

Four university students in Beijing decorated their dormitory room in the style of a traditional Japanese bar, greatly amusing Chinese netizens.

The students, from Communication University of China, took about four months to decorate the room, at a cost of about 3,000 yuan (US$457).

A room member, surnamed Song, said he was inspired to turn their dorm into something special when he saw some pictures of Japanese lanterns and thatched roofing online.

Other room members supported his idea and the group began to decorate the room, referring to the style of Japanese izakaya (traditional Japanese drinking establishments).

Though Chinese netizens praised them for their creativity, the school has asked them to remove part of the decorations due to safety concerns.

"The school said what we did has broken relevant dormitory rules,” Song said. “But we don’t have to remove everything, just the dangerous parts like the lanterns, which will be removed soon.”
