Why are capsule hotels popular in Japan?



  1. 0 Votes


    With Japan deep into their own recession, much of the civilian workforce can’t afford to rent Tokyo apartments, and the ~$640 monthly charge for capsule hotels (including fresh linens, no utility charge and spa/shower use) becomes a viable utilitarian option.  It’s just a place to sleep and shower.  In this, the capsule hotels have been transformed from convenient places to ‘crash’ for a night or two into semi-permanent living spaces.

    Capsule hotels are present in six of Japan’s major cities, but they are found in elevated numbers in Tokyo due to demand by a large population and interest by the business class. Capsule hotels are cheap to stay in for a night too, usually around $30 a night.
