Unique Japanese Hotel Experience Mar 01, 2010
If you happen to come to Japan, you must try the unique experience of staying at a capsule hotel. Situated in the american quarter, you stay in these very small rooms (mostly resembling a coffin), crammed with everything that you need; tv, radio, alarm clock etc. The whole hotel was exceptionally clean (as there is a curfew from 12 to 14 every day, where the whole hotel is cleaned), and you recieve new clean linen every day. For a hotel ind Japan it is very cheap (about 35 $), but one should take in to consideration that the whole idea behind this type of hotel is very communal; shared bath room, common baths (not shower cabins) etc. Ie. the only private space on this hotel is your (very small) capsule, so this hotel is definately not for the private minded or the claustrophobic.

Because of the daily curfew, you will be assigned a locker at the ground floor of the hotel, and you will therefore not be able to store stuff at your capsule.

There are washing machines and dryers at the visitors disposal.

Free internet is available at the reception.

All capsules have an alarm button (to which the staff will respond immediately - pressed it myself on accident ;).

Women (because of the somewhat absurd gender segregation in Japan) are referred to the basement of the building.

The staff are very friendly and helpful, although some of them did not speak english.

All in all this is a very nice hostel, and is definately worth a visit.

I almost forgot: For the amount of 10 yen you can watch porn in your capsule. This part was a bit disturbing, as there were a lot of elderly men who came to the hotel for this exact reason...
the capsules from outside.
there are about 20 capsules on eac…
surprisingly roomy.
