Now this one certainly defines the world bizarre. If you are ever looking for cheap and hassle-free accommodation in Japan head to the nearest Capsule Hotel. There are quite a few of these all over the country. The place provides lodging in small person sized “rooms”. You can leave your luggage in lockers and sleep peacefully in one of the bunkers at this extraordinary place. Although the idea behind them was to cater to overnight lodgers, tourists are slowly cozying up to the idea of staying here just for the fun of it. It is certainly an experience worth a shot.
There are many of these in the country but the most famous one is perhaps this one in Tokyo. Take the unique experience of living in a capsul hotel following this Tokyo 5 day itinerary.

Capsule Hotel Reviews & Ratings
I have been travelling Japan for three months. This is the worst experience I have ever had in this country and that is saying a lot considering how many places I have stayed in here. I booked my reservation almost 10 days in advance, and since the site I was booking on did not offer the option to have one male and one female booking I booked for 2 people and mate a note on the reservation that we were one male and one female and would need the appropriate accommodation. They sent me an email confirming the booking, with my specified need, so I thought all was well. The day I went to check in they told me they could not honor my reservation and also could not refund me as it was not 24hrs in advance. Of course it wasnt in advance! I was never told that there was an issue with my reservation and they had ample time to tell me there was an issue but chose not to so that they would not have to refund me and keep my money. Not only that, they told me they would only refund me if I booked a NEW reservation with them. And for one night, it was the same cost as my initial reservation was for two nights, so it was double the original price. They refused to just change one of the beds of the initial booking to female despite the fact they had unreserved beds available. This place is a scam. DO NOT COME HERE. Gave us problems even when checking out, which you had to do every day no matter how long you are staying there by the way, wanted to charge me $70 for the next night (which again would be almost double the price of my original booking) I left immediately. I would give 0 stars if I could.
A good place to bunk over if you want a (nearly) proper rest without going to a hotel. It's really close to the station. Cubicle is comfy but the only barrier is a rather flimsy curtain. It does not block all sound nor light coming from outside. At least it is not an internet cafe where it's completely open at the top.
If you are fine with sleeping in a capsule, this is a perfect place to stay in Tokyo. The bath area with sauna, jacuzzi, and separate dedicated area for getting ready is perfect combination you wouldn't find even in an expensive hotel. Ideally, if you like bath in jacuzzi in Japanese community style, just book this place
The capsule was way too hot. Didn’t get much sleep.
Cannot fault the place, would definitely stay again
