A Capsule hotel is a unique style of accommodation in Japan, inspired by the
pursuit of efficiency of space and functional comfort, originating from the
adaptive, creative spirit of the Japanese mind.
A typical Capsule Hotel is composed of two major sections; a public lounge space
including bathing, and the other is a private space where the sleeping rooms
(capsules) are arranged. The actual sleeping room is a capsule unit made of
reinforced plastic and designed in the image of a jet airplane's cockpit. In the
capsule unit, all the required amenities are provided; TV, radio, alarm clock,
adjustable lighting... almost everything is provided! Every device is within
your reach and you can control everything in a sleeping position.
For the numerous business people working hard until after midnight and who miss
their train, and for all the people coming to Tokyo on a short business trip, or
holiday; young and old, men and women, a wide range of people stay at Capsule
hotels in Tokyo. The Capsule Inn Akihabara is the best place to learn about the
latest in Japanese modern culture, direct from the people staying at our hotel!
Everybody that travels to Japan should experience this unique accommodation, at
least once! One of the most unique accommodations in the world!
Details of the Capsule Units
At the Capsule Inn Akihabara, a separate capsule unit is available for each
guest, as a sleeping space. Each room has blinds to be drawn for complete
privacy. In the capsule unit, amenities like a TV, radio, alarm clock and
adjustable lighting are provided. You can control all these devices in a
sleeping position, as if you were in a cockpit of an aircraft, or spacecraft.
You might recall the movie The Fifth Element, directed by Luc Besson. Our
capsule units will remind you of the main character, Bruce Willis' small living
and sleeping area.
