Becase you don't have electric in the capsul. And if you haven't payday for upgrade you have to make your own bed and the mates is way harder if you haven't... More

I stayed here after an 11.5 hour flight from Auckland, New Zealand. It makes for a great travellers story staying at this place. Just prior to arriving I checked online what the address was for this place and noticed a 'no tattoos' policy which is fairly common in Japan. I myself had a New Zealand cultural tattoo on my arm...

This is great for solo and short overnight stopover. It's my first capsule experience so read with discretion Pros - 8 to 10 mins from Shinjuku JR line (1 min from Seibu Shinjuku st) - Clean (no shoes) - sizeable onsen - quick check-in and out process despite queue Cons - small locker (free); had to pay for larger ones...

Best place for your first capsule hotel experience as it is the biggest! and equipped with everything you need: indoor/outdoor bath (both with artificial onsen), jacuzzi, cold bath, sauna, rest area for nap, toiletries, tv, magazine, computer table with LAN cable and power socket, meals and clothing on sale if you need. And they can help to store your luggage... More

This is not for everyone, but if you like trying new things and want to experience Japanese culture, DO NOT miss this! One night is enough. Men only, absolutely no tattoos, but foreigner friendly. Take off your shoes and out them in a locker when you check in. The reception can keep your luggage for you, but remember that you... More

My friend and I booked our stay through a booking agency website, which did NOT mention that we were not allowed to have any tattoos or body art, it also failed to mention we should take our shoes off upon arrival. The instant we walked in, my friend got yelled at in a viscous and severe tone by the man... More

Absolutely clean, decent and healthy hot water pools, steam room, dry heat and cold plunge pool. Separate segregated floors, men/women and very professional staff and atmosphere. NO TATTOOS ALLOWED, since it is a Japanese identification of gang membership! The cost varies for the amount of time, very reasonable and great restaurant and sleeping area. It might be a bit hard...

Neighborhood Profile
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
