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...

We arrived at the lobby where the desk clerk told us that our reservations would be cancelled and we couldnt stay there. Not happy when all of tge other hotels in the area were all booked up and now the... More

I have read the reviews on tripadvisor and doubted a little bit reading stuff about 'drunken japanese men', tiny outdated capsules....well after staying for one night i have to say......I loved it, Wouldn't miss the experience. I actually traded a night at the Grant Hyatt for this hotel. You shouldn't compare it with a 'normal' hotel stay, just see it... More

Once you've survived the first night in this capsule hotel, you'll probably come to love it. Weirdly rigid in its structure of checking in and out daily, barcoded keys and robes that half transform you into an inmate of a psychiatric institute, and rows and rows of capsules made this capsule hotel a highlight of our first days in Tokyo....

I've always wanted to experience staying at a Capsule Hotel, Check. Very much an experience that is worthy of researching before trying. The check-in process was a little convoluted, at least for someone new to the experience, lots of protocol, remove shoes before lobby, lock shoes in special box, bring key to front desk. Check in, exchange shoe-key for electronic... More

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.
