The Shinjuku Capsule Hotel... room.

Space in the big Japan cities are weighted in gold even in hotel. Therefore, a breed of hotel called the capsule hotel can be found as a mean for weary travellers and salaried man too drunk to go home to pass a quick night.

The luxurious accomodation is a cavenous 2 meters long by a meter in width and the same for headroom. You can have a choice of room color as long as it is yellow. In-room amenities included a large 12" color TV, radio-alarm clock, full face plastic mirror. For your security, the pull-down plastic shutter with hook at the bottom ensure that your "door" will snap open as soon as a 8 months old toddler touches it. Full sauna and a pair of hot/cold pools are provided without charge on the sixth floor. The hot pool will garanteed to turn you instantly into lobster's red. The sub-zero temperature of the cold pool will cryogenically preserved your body till the next century. You will have a wonderful chat with butt-naked men around you which by the way you also have to be one yourself if you want to join the club. The shared hi-tech ultravioleted sanitized hairbrush will keep the lice of other people out of your head. The soothing sound of drunken men slumbering in all night and I do mean ALL night will give you much needed time to think about one of the biggest and best mistake in your life.

If you need sleep, you are in the wrong place my friend, if you want to experience Shinjuku city night life, welcome home.
