How Would You Like 9 hours in a Capsule
Because space is at a premium in Japan, hotels have sprung up that are only capsules. Indeed, you get a small sleeping space, a shared shower area, place to store your clothing, and reading area, and you have 9 hours that you could stay in this designer capsule hotel.
In a way, it’s an ingenious use of space—a very sci-fi type look and I could see how it could definitely work for someone that missed the train and didn’t have a lot of money. I could also see it as some low cost housing that could be tried.
But I wonder what kind of security goes into a place like this. Seems like there’d be a lot of opportunity for mischief.
