Capsule Hotels In Japan

Capsule hotels are unique accommodations developed in Japan. It usually costs about $25 to $40 per night. Since it's cheap, mainly business men who couldn't go home stay at capsule hotels. Also, capsule hotels are popular among foreign travelers.
In capsule hotels, each guest stays in a small sleeping space (capsule) which is about 3 feet by 4 feet by 6 feet. In a capsule, there are a TV, an alarm clock, a light, and so on. The open side of a capsule is shut by a curtain or a screen, and it is unlocked. To sleep well in capsule hotels, earplugs might be helpful. A locker key is handed to each guest to keep baggage in a locker outside the capsules. The lockers aren't suitable for large bags. Shower rooms/bath rooms and rest rooms are shared by all guests, but many capsule hotels offer a large public bath or a sauna.
Women aren't often allowed in capsule hotels due to security reasons. Please contact hotels in advance. There are capsule hotels offer seperate floors or areas for men and women guests.
