It’s much a like to sleeping in a giant dorm room but with a lot more privacy and amenities. Each bed comes with it’s own set of power sockets, radio & alarm, and television, as well as a set of curtains you can draw or a blind which you can pull down for privacy.My only real qualm with the beds is that the mattresses are very thin and so my sleep wasn’t as comfortable as I was hoping.
The hostel workers speak varying degrees of English – the first worker I spoke with was near enough to fluent whilst some of the other workers just used gestures to communicate with me. Due to this lapse in language it is important to be mindful of customs which the Japanese such as taking your shoes off when entering the hotel.
There is beer and other drinks available for purchase at the hostel, lockers in the reception, and fast WiFi throughout the hotel – perfect!
After spending a lot of time sleeping in hotels in India, capsule hostels which Japan are famous for but with all of the features included inside the capsule, the convenience, and space being at a premium in big cities like Tokyo, it is understandable why they are such a popular option with both locals and foreigners wanting to try something new.
So, what do you think?
Would you like to stay in a Capsule Hotel?
ME: I wanna sleep….But I can’t….there’s a computer in the room….and people online…..and just cant.
Sleep please love me? I want you to…but if you don’t then I can never find out how to get to you. So please can you just accept me for who I am, and love me?
I want you to be able to take me away and distract me, and only be able to focus on you…. But you’re not making this easy.
So sleep can you come back to me? And love me like you did before in the past?
SLEEP: No, can’t you understand I don’t love you. And never will. Frankly you bore me now, and I want nothing to do with you. So now get away from me, because I will always be above you and you far beneath me so why should I even try to love someone as pitiful as you?
SLEEP: Didn’t I tell you I would never love you, I will never give you the chance to be with me. You are unattractive and stupid! And should always suffer from insomnia! You will never deserve me.
ME: But, I still want to try. I want to try to reach a level closer to you, just so I can be closer to you. I will change myself for you and only you…So please can you just wait for me?
SLEEP: Die. I hope you just die. I’ll never wait for you. You’ll never reach my level and never will get closer to me. YOU.ARE.A.DISGUSTING.BEING. Drop dead.
ME:…. OK…I’ll do as you wish, and stop trying. But I’ll always be here if you ever want to take me back.
SLEEP: Pfft. Hearing that from you that’s a complete insult.
ME: I’ll still wait even if you hate me.
SLEEP: You may wait all you want but nothing will happen for you.
