If you're a solo traveler looking for a cheap room in Tokyo, this is the way to do it. There are few capsule hotels that allow females, and this one has an all-female floor! It's in the Asakusa area, which is an interesting and historic area of Tokyo. Remember, Tokyo addresses are a little difficult to find, so be sure to print out the map of this place. I stayed here for a night after getting into Tokyo from overseas...it was the perfect place to crash, and it's really quiet. And don't forget the parts you're really interested in...it was definitely unique, and more importantly, it was cheap!! The showers are on a different floor, and they are communal (single-sex only, of course). Also, the staff doesn't speak English, so read instructions carefully before you get there. You pay for your room through the vending machine, leave your shoes in the locker, and the guy at the front will give you a key to your capsule. Try it out...it's worth staying at least one night! PS - another piece of advice - they charge you to store bags during the day, and you have to check out each day, even if you're staying for multiple nights. So this is probably more of a novelty place to stay...
