ANSHIN OYADO CAPSULE HOTEL
Get a Lot Out of a Little in This “New-Fashion” Capsule Hotel!
Foreign visitors of Japan probably have never stayed in a capsule hotel before, and the common notion may be if you stay at one you have your capsule, which is essentially just a bed, and not much else. However, at the new (as of summer 2016) Anshin Oyado capsule hotel in Ogikubo, this is quite the contrary.
The new capsule hotel demonstrates quite well Japan’s standards of cleanliness, technology, and hospitality. Your capsule will be state-of-the-art, complete with a mounted flat screen TV, wireless headphones, a tablet device with free wi-fi and free movie service (which can be hooked up to your TV) plus A/C. Everything is new and it looks like it—pristine and kept up diligently, you’ll feel like you’re staying in a high class hotel. You’ll also experience Japanese hospitality from the friendly staff and services, including free tea and soft drinks, miso soup, washing machines and provided soap, laptop rental, and more, all free!
Capsule Hotels in Japan are usually men-only, like this one, which includes a public bathing area. Use of the public bath is also a unique Japanese treat—but please note that all men will bathe in the same area—there are no private baths or showers. This is traditional Japanese style, and in the relaxing bath you will soon forget there are other people there. The bath can also be used by men who aren’t staying at the hotel for a fee (1,080 yen). You can choose from 20 different kind of shampoos and body soaps, all provided! Also unlike almost all hot springs and public baths in Japan, this one allows tattoos, so even those with tattoos can experience this relaxing part of Japanese culture here.
Aside from the bath and front area on the 1st floor and 162 Capsule rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors, the 4th floor is a bar and restaurant for use by guests and other visitors (like the bath, men only). All-you-can-eat curry is popular at lunch time (11:30am – 2:00pm). Breakfast is available 6am-10am, and dinner/bar time is 6pm-midnight. To further aid your relaxation and recreation, there are massage chairs and a library of Japanese manga, plus free darts and a virtual reality gaming device (600 yen/game). Check out Anshin Oyado for a fresh and relaxing experience!
