Sleeping in a capsule hotel!! Cool! Oct 18, 2008
I definitely wanted to spend the night in a capsule hotel. It's something different. The "room" was very comfy, not at all as claustrophobic as I had imagined it. The problem were the lockers, too small for our backpacks, so we had to squeeze them in the capsule with us, so this made the "rooms" even smaller than they were. Still a good experience. I wouldn't recommend it to tall people though... In the capsule you have radio and tv in Japanese, not that I used them but...
When you arrive, you have to leave your shoes in little lockers in the lobby, where you have also internet access. There are cold and hot drinks machines and a smoking room on the top floor.
There are many places around to have or buy food, and the subway station is like 5 minutes away.

Capsule Inn Akihabara Tokyo Overview
A Capsule hotel is a unique style of accommodation in Japan, inspired by the pursuit of efficiency of space and functional comfort, originating from the adaptive, creative spirit of the Japanese mind. A typical Capsule Hotel is composed of two major sections, a public lounge space including bathing, and the other is a private space where the sleeping rooms (capsules) are arranged. The actual sleeping room is a capsule unit made of reinforced plastic and designed in the image of a jet airplane cockpit. In the capsule unit, all the required amenities are provided, TV, radio, alarm clock, adjustable lighting and almost everything is provided. Every device is within your reach and you can control everything in a sleeping position. Guests are required to check-out at 10am every day if staying 2 nights or more.
