Tokyo Tourism: Capsule Hotel

The 9Hours Capsule Hotel in the Narita airport in Tokyo, Japan was extraordinarily clean, quiet, and comfortable. John took a video of the inside of his capsule “bedroom” before going to sleep after a long flight from India (of course, it’s difficult to get a good shot of such a small space). The 9Hours hotel provides separate lodging for both men and women (complete with pods, showers, bathrooms, and lockers), which is a plus since most capsule hotels only offer lodging for men. Plus, you don’t even have to unpack your bags! You put your stuff in a locker and are provided with jammies, toothbrush and toothpaste, fun little slippers, and toiletries. It was an excellent experience (and we’d totally do it again).
