CAPSULE HOTEL

カプセルホテル[KAPUSERU-HOTERU]

Capsule hotels originated in Japan and provide each guest with a private, enclosed bed with no extra space to waste. They offer safe and inexpensive lodging for less money than regular hotels. The minimalist design is the epitome of Japanese space management and has attracted a lot of foreign travelers in recent years. Sleeping in a capsule may remind you of the time when you hid in a closet when you were a kid or evoke what it would be like to be a larva in a beehive or on board a spaceship. How one experiences a capsule hotel varies from person to person.
