Have you ever stayed at the capsule hotel?

Capsule hotels are hotels that provide beds shaped like capsules (box-shaped).
As this style of hotel can only be found in Japan,
its uniqueness makes it very popular with foreigners.
Amongst these hotels is the Business Inn New City
which has various themed rooms including ninja themed rooms,
and anime themed rooms, both of which are very popular and soon become fully booked.

Why do Japanese people stay there?

But it seems to be interesting like the secret room!

 Here is Hinode-Cho Station in Yokohama.

It is the 2nd stop from Yokohama station.
You should ride on a local train which is called Keikyu-Line.
( You can also come from Sakuragicho station and Kannai station of JR line. )

There is “Business in New City” when you walk about 3 minutes from the station.

You can stay the capsule hotel, take a bath in the large public bath(for free),
have a meal at the restaurant, get a massage and body scrub.

First of all, check in at the reception desk.

Check-in:: from 15:00

Check-out: Until 10:00

The reception in English was smooth because many foreigners came here.
You can stay here without reservation, but you should reserve a room because you can stay certainly.

Next, you choose the type of the rooms which you stay.

I was interested in Ninja’s rooms, so I chose it.
( An overnight stay is \4,000 )

After you paid fee, you get a key band from reception staff.
It is a locker key, so be careful to lose it.


Sorry, I forget to tell you the most important thing!
This hotel is only for men, so women can’t stay here.
I’m so sorry.

And tattoo is also forbidden. This is Japanese culture,
but the hotel staffs lent me a tape, so if you hide it all, you can stay here.

Let’s go to the room.

Teleportation like a Ninja!

And I changed pajamas before I knew it.

This is a Ninja Capsule!

Can I sleep here?

The floor is covered with the tatami and it is truly Japanese structure.

There is Shuriken!!

(※This is a magnet.)

How do you feel that?


Although it seems to be narrow from outside, I (height of 186 cm) am not narrow, either.
I also feel like being in the cock pit.

There is television also in such a small room.
The brightness of the room can be adjusted.

It is terrible for claustrophobic people.
The key was not attached to the bed, but I wasn’t worrisome because I shut curtain.

I also saw different rooms specially this time because there are interesting rooms beside Ninja’s rooms.

It was interesting in the all concepts which is transmitted Japanese culture.

 Finally, The manager showed me the best room.

What’s the room?


Is the room made by Bishoujyo of animation?


When I see the bed…



Lady animation character-printed pillows and sheet !

If you like anime characters so much, you can have the best dream!

If it is not the reserved room, even when it is vacant, you will also change the room on the day.
I want to stay anime room, but I also want to stay Ninja room…

I was allowed to sleep to anime room specially because I was selfish a little.



 I was so happy ?

After the manager introduced the rooms, I took the bath.

I couldn’t take pictures, but cold plunge is the best after taking a sauna.
I think the bath makes me hot, but I’m surprised how to enjoy taking a bath like this.
(In mother country Brazil, when I catch a cold, I take a cold water bath.)

After taking a bath, I drank beer at the restaurant.
You can eat Japanese food, Western food, Chinese food, and more!

I took a bath, and drank beer, so… Just go to bed!

There were an internet corner and comics corner,
but I was so sleepy because I walked around so much, so I went to bed early.


After all, I was interested in anime room, but I slept in Ninja room.


I knew that later, there was an interesting shop which foreign people enjoy on the firstbasement in this hotel.

It opens until 5:00 am・・・ Please tell me more quickly!
Let’s go there, too!

I checked out by 10:00 a.m. on the next day.

This hotel isn’t big, but I enjoyed so much because it clogged many things of “Cool Japan”.
If you will come to Yokohama, you should stay here!
I recommend to people who want to use the capsule hotel and stay reasonable.

I do recommend… staying anie rooms!
