If it looks familiar, you've probably seen it on HBO's Girls!

Have you ever experienced seeing a house for the first time and your memory takes you back to your childhood? These apartments in Japan might just do the trick. From the outside, it may look like a McDonald's playground—in reality, however, it's more than just wacky decor. 

The Reversible Destiny Lofts is a spacious two-bedroom apartment known for its bright-colored walls, one-of-a-kind showers, and indoor hammocks. Located in Tokyo, many tourists (and locals who enjoy going on a staycation!) flock to the Mitaka region of the city to experience a two to three night stay in the fun home. 

It was built by architects and budding artists Shusaku Arakawa and Madeline Gins to honor the memory of Helen Keller, so they designed a space with a "to not die" philosophy in mind. This is also the reason behind the playful architecture and rainbow-inspired paint. 

The loft isn't just easy on the eyes, it's functional, too. Going for $137 per day, it is packed with pod-like rooms that are sectioned off, giving you the freedom to sleep in one room and hangout in another. It also has a fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom, and living area. As an art piece, Reversible Destiny was featured in a 1997 exhibition at the Guggenheim.
