This Is What Life in a Tokyo Capsule Hotel Is Really Like

10 Feb 2014

Lobby

Look at this inviting and warm lobby. You buy a ticket out of the vending machine on the left to stay the night.

706

After going up an elevator I made it to the 7th floor. The entire floor is basically a hallway with these small square holes stacked 2 high on each side. I was on the bottom.

No real door

I hope no one on my floor snores (spoilers: they did).

Inside

This is from the inside looking at the door. Note the spacious closet and ventilation fan.

Amenities

My legs for scale. The tv took ¥100 coins to watch it but I just assumed it didn't work. And don't be fooled by the window... it was bolted shut.

Doesn't look like it has enough room for a couple hookers and a camera crew so I guess that's why there's no porn flicks online featuring action in one of these...

looks like one of the older builds. i've seen newer ones that are quite a bit more hi-tech. maybe not such a bargain, though.
