Japan is full of cool things. From smart toilets to vending machines that sell everything, you gotta admit it — the Japanese are super innovators. And when they make something, it’s always about creating solutions to everyday problems. Like the capsule hotel.


In Japan, if you miss your last train, need to pull an all nighter at work, or even if just need a place to crash for the night, there’s the capsule hotel.

You can listen to the sound of waves as you sleep in your capsule. Hay, Japan. 😏

But for foreign tourists, it’s a chance to experience something unique. And for female solo travelers, you’ll be glad to know that some capsule hotels have female only floors like the Shinjuku Kuyakusho-mae Capsule Hotel   .

How often do you get to stay in such a tight space?

And just because space is limited, it doesn’t mean that your comfort and convenience gets compromised. These cool mini rooms usually come with a TV, dimmers, a comfy mattress and a blind which you can pull down for privacy.

This is what the corridor looks like.


This room looks like a spaceship cabin.

My "home" for the next few days here in Taipei. 🙂 pretty cool! #capsulehotel
