Capsule Hotel

Welcome to a capsule hotel!


Only found in Japan, this low cost hotels can host dozens of customers in only one room.


It's definitively not for claustrophobic people!


For the story, I didn't planned my trip well and ended up in transit in an unknown Japanese town. The only youth hostel was sold out so I had to improvise.


I ended up in this huge Casino/hotel/Onsen complex, bargaining for a room.


For a pretty decent price, I was assigned my own capsule n°7001 and free access to the Onsen.


With nothing to do till my train on next morning, I spend the evening chilling in hot tubes, surrounded by naked Japanese guys that didn't speak a word of English!
