Tokyo Capsule Hotel Experience ★ ONLY in JAPAN

Shinjuku it’s one of the busiest and
brightest areas in the world. It’s called by some
the backyard of Tokyo. A place where you can go and have fun.It’s also a popular place for tourists to stay if you wanna be near the action.So here we are in the heart of Shinjuku and this is my friend MASA from the Pirates of Tokyo Bay. Hello everyone! And guess what we’ re here because of unfortunate
circumstances and wasn’t really either our fault we were kinda making a heavy fun…. Maybe having too
much fun yeah we ended up missing the train This is Golden GAI the bar area and a place where you can be easily lose track of time Luckily we were near this capsule hotel situated right in the centre Shinjuku which is really popular with Japanese businessman if they go out late, drink a little bit too
much or work too late maybe their wives are…. don’t really want to see them tonight…
It’s very convenient to come here without a reservation And also a lot of foreign
tourists wanna check out this place too, so they
come here experience what it’s like The Shinjukuku kuyakusho-mae capsule hotel checkin starts at 4 p.m. take off your shoes at the entrance and put them in a locker, give the key to
the front desk you’ll need it again if you want to
leave the hotel its 4,500 yen a night but there are loads of online coupons that
offer discounts especially if you make a reservation There are 430 individual capsules here The sixth and seventh floor is for men the eighth floor is reserved for women
only don’t lose the wristband key put it on and keep it with you. The
number is important there’s a locker near the lobby where
you can leave your belongings and change towels and pajamas are inside it’s also your capsule number But first, let’s change into our pajamas yes we’re
gonna do just that right now yeah So MASA why do we have to wear
these pajamas? well John because it’s more comfortable and you could go to the bathroom alright take a bath the kinda COOL Is this what we call a
JIN-BEI? and I call it a very comfortable clothes the bath very elegant the Japanese bath is perfect place to
not only get clean but relax and let the troubles of the day and night melt away.It’s only proper to
provide toothbrushes and razors for free shampoo and soap as well its time to head to the capsule upstairs the capsule floor is dark and quite. Its like that for a reason this is where you sleep many say it reminds them of the morgue or a coffin where vampires sleep It just depends on how you look at it enter and try for yourself…if you dare MASA is in the bottom capsule and heads in first. What’s his impression? alright so here’s the bottom part of
the capsule hotel it’s not it’s not too small and I can
like extend my arms like this So its very comfortable, you can do
whatever you want and if you wanna go to sleep You can turn off the light like this and
sleep and yeah and you have a curtain
right here so yeah before you go to sleep make sure
you role down the curtains to go to sleep so Good night everyone.I it’s been nice knowing y’all and have a nice night I have to climb to small ladder for the
upper capsule it’s sort of like a bunk bed pretty comfortable it’s not exactly what
I expected expected it to be a lot tighter and more constrain that was my
image but this capsule is two meters long
one meter wide 1 meter high seems to be the perfect size almost like
a twin size bedding here KISHO KUROKAWA the architect of these capsule hotels also create a building called the NAKAGIN capsule towers in SHINMABSHI. Capsule hotels were
designed in the nineteen seventies with the future in mind so were the NAKAGIN capsule towers the round windows give the impression of
a spaceship They’re cozy, and everything you need inside bath, kitchen, bed. TV Outside they look like cargo containers. A practical idea yes really comfortable! If you take
a look, my feet are in here yeah I’m 180 centimetres tall I have about 10
centimetres to spare 10 20 centimeters so..comfortable these capsules have what you need for the night a TV , air vent an alarm , radio and electrical outlet fast and free WiFi just remember the golden rule: be quiet this floor is meant for sleeping and alone time So…just how small are they? only one way to find out two grown men we have the walls around… We’re gonna sleep like this all the time This is your area….so don’t even touch it! Don’t even think about it! This is no man’s land Better off solo in these things Each guest must check out at 10 a.m. every day even if you have reserved more
than one night Take all your belongings with you! That
also means every capsule is made up again. If you want to stay during the day special capsules are available for 500
yen an hour each capsule has fresh sheets by 4
p.m. many capsule hotels have a small
restaurant this restaurant is open from 6 p.m. to
midnight the food its good!! The vegetarian tofu
burger set is 700 yen the daily special Menchikatsu, a
breaded meat patty for 700 yen Snacks are 300 yen each EDAMAME and grilled squid slices perfect with the 400-yen draft beer after a bath and changing into your
pajamas it can be a hassle to change into your street clothes again for those that just want to chill out
this is the way to go and no cash needed!! show your wrist
KeyBand and pay at checkout two guys from the UK
just checked in why stay here? just a convenience of it You have to be out by 10 which helps us daily to get up You have to check out so a green light by your capsule number
indicates a checked in status the power is on you can put your arms up not too much to the side You have privacy as well Hey ladies rest easy the security is ON! the women’s floor requires a pass code to enter. Security cameras as well at the door No men allowed but after checkout we got an inside look The locker seemed bigger and newer! the capsule seem cleaner the floor is hard wood, making it easier
to sweep up all that hair the bathroom? clean and modern. Everything is new
including those smart toilets that auto open and close This is heaven it’s late I can’t sleep it’s time for a midnight snack near the lounge there’s an instant
Raman vending machine. In fact there are a lot
of machines beer drink laundry Pick a Ramen and fill it up with hot water and grab a chair in front of the TV not bad, eh? this is living So, whether you drank too much
amd missed the last train just need a place to crash or just want
to try the capsule hotel experience on your trip around Japan no reservations needed here just come on im and chill out for a

There are some capsule hotel in other country too, but it surely originated in japan. I used to rest in capsule hotel once just to save some cash coz it was cheap , like 10-12 usd per night in a commercial area which normal hotel will cost way more than 50 usd. It 's fine for me. They have free wifi, shared refridgerator bahtroom, and you can rent a locker to keep your belongings safe.

So a man and women at this place…..well I guess the wife can enter the pass code to let the man in. I wonder what happens when someone does that or if it's even a problem at all.

This capsule hotel would probably not work here in the States. First, it feels morbid kind of reminds you of those freezer in the morgue. Second, I don't know about Japanese people, but Americans have a lot of phobias and one of those is claustrophobia — fear of enclosed and tight spaces. Third, Americans love privacy and prefer to stay in hotel or motel than with a group of strangers. Fourth, this is a culture thing, Americans are hard working people but most Americans come home to their families at end of a work day. Home is where you unwind and not in some hotels around town.
