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
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
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
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
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
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
capsule hotel
it’s not it’s not too small and I can
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
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
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

also means every capsule is made up again.
