This is a traditional Japanese capsule hotel. Most of the guests there are Japanese locals. Besides myself, I didn't see any foreigners. The staff there were quite friendly. Though they didn't speak much English. It was a neat experience staying there. You don't wear shoes inside. When you go in you put them in a locker and you can either wear slippers, go barefoot or in socks. They don't have showers. Instead it's a communal bath area where you get a little plastic stool to sit on and have a showerhead on the end of a hose. Soap, shampoo, disposable razors etc. are included. They give you towels and a robe and shorts. Most of the guests wear these whenever they're inside. There's a sitting area with vending machines and tables and a TV wear a lot of guys hang out. The area is a bit seedy (which may or may not suit you). I happen to think it was colourful. There are a lot of bars and restaurants and other entertainment establishments in the immediate area. The capsule itself was perfectly fine as far as I was concerned. Bring ear plugs just in case you get a lot of snorers in your section. I didn't have a problem with noise. Note: The men's hotel is on the second floor. There is a ladies only version of this hotel on street level.
