The night I slept in a capsule
Have you heard about these capsule hotels which exist only in Japan ?
I tried one (for fun!) in Shinjuku (Tokyo). An interesting experience.
These capsules can be used by salary men who work too late to catch their train back home (as in Tokyo, people can live far from their office), or for men who are too drunk to go home (I should add that Shinjuku district is quite a hot spot for night life -drinking among other stuff).
To let you know, I remember I paid maybe ¥4000 for that night (35 or 40€), which is in fact one of the most expensive hotel “room” I paid for. As you may not be thinking, it’s possible to find cheap (25-30€/night) hotel single rooms in Japan -if you know how to search.
