Hotel room that looks like mini container

At some major cities in Japan such as Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Kobe there is a unique hotel with rooms shaped looks like a tube box that can only be used for one person to sleep in it. It is usually called as capsule hotel. The capsules as the hotel room are stacked side by side in a row and usually there are two stacking of rooms where one unit placed on top of the other.

The capsule facilities contains one mattress in small sleeping space (about 6 – 6, 5 feet long) with pillow and blanket for one person to sleep in it and some include a TV inside that attach at the corner inside the capsule. Other facilities like bathroom are normally shared in a separated room but it is larger enough to accommodate the guests needs. Also there are locker facilities to keep the guest baggage outside the capsules. The capsule sealed with a transparent door so we can see inside what its look like but it is also equipped with some curtain to keep the guest privacy.

Capsule hotel usually being favorite by travelers or business men who late or couldn’t go home at night, actually more male guest than female. It usually costs from 2,500 yen to 4,500 yen per night or around $30 to $50 per night. Besides on Japan, now there are also other capsule hotel that opened in other countries such as in Warsaw, Poland, and in Shanghai, China as of January 2011.

I love writing, sometimes I can not string words properly, but I have a purpose in a way with words that are sometimes difficult to explain with words. I hope many people can understand my intentions
