Bee comfortable and try a Capsule Hotel

The capsule hotels (カ プ セ ル ホ テ ル, kapuseruhoteru) are part of the fantasy of many tourists traveling to Japan. They have the particularity to fully optimize the space occupied and the rooms are therefore limited to a single cabin bed. The Capsule Inn Osaka, designed by Kisho Kurokawa and located in the Umeda district of Osaka, was the first capsule hotel. It opened on 1 February 1979.
In this space there is all you need: a single bed, storage space, a lamp and a TV. Showers and changing rooms are collective. If the place looks very confined, for the claustrophobic, know there is space to move, or even sit down, it’s not a coffin. These “dormitories” rarely welcome the ladies. If this is the case, women and men will be separated. Finally, note that the capsules are only for one person.
Here is a list of some of the coolest ones in Japan.
