This capsule hotel with big shared bath is located in Sendai downtown adjunct to shopping arcade for daytime and bars for nightlife.

Bathroom with sauna and outdoor bathtub, aka 'Roten-buro' is very clean and must-have items from towels to teeth blush are prepared for free.

Capsule bed is tiny, of course, but enough for just one night stay.

Guests are assigned their own locker number and staff provides locker key with bar code. During the stay, almost all expenses like restaurant order, relaxation massage , etc. are charged to the key.

There are capsules on multiple floors, but the big sauna/shower/bath portion is on the top floor.
On your floor there is a larger...
