    I’d like to imagine the foot bath is just a decorative fountain with a British bloke in it confusing all the locals.

      @Tenrai Forsythe So that's why sometimes in anime a bunch of people will just get naked in a hot spring as the animators cleverly obscure anything nude.
      I did always find those scenes a little gross...

      I think that’s probably where capsule hotels would have the best chances in the US. Whether it’s for resting during a layover, having a place to spend the night before an early flight, or having a place to sleep before continuing in your travels after your plane gets in at midnight, I think that the fact people are just looking for a secure place to sleep, not a room to relax in, could be a selling point at airports.

    I love the idea of a capsule hotel. When I go on a trip I spend very little time at the hotel because I am out seeing the sights as late as I can. So I love that the Capsule Hotel is not for those wanting to "take it easy". I can watch TV at home. I just want a place to sleep. that's it. end of story.

      Not even in Asian restaurants? In the U.S., skewers are a pretty standard appetizer in many if not most Thai and Chinese restaurants. Also, Greek restaurants offer their version of skewers -- beef, tomatoes, onions, etc. -- over rice or pasta. Yum.

      @niino Was it in a carry-on or checked luggage?

That's in Seattle, so I'm not surprised Japan did the same. It's a shame of course though lol.

    I would recommend "doya" business hotels in the San'ya area of Tokyo and in the Nishinari ward of Osaka. These places offer cheap tiny rooms for day contract workers, but a lot of them have been converted into backpacker hotels nowadays. Though they are not nearly as clean as this capsule hotel, you can get an actual private room for the same or even lower prices. Prices vary a lot, but I think you can enjoy a decent stay if you pay around 3000 yen per night.

    Thanks for your entertaining videos. If you go to NYC, check out a hotel called The Jane, It was built for sea men for an inexpensive place to stay. The rooms are larger than the capsules, but still quite small and compact. There is a small tv attached to the wall, shared bathrooms with toilets and showers. The hotel is way away from Times Square, about 8-10 blocks from Union Square. Better to stay there than in a crowded Hostel, but there can still be noise from your neighbors. I visited Japan years ago but have not been back since. I love that they take shoes off at the door, respect their elders, use futons, minimize
    posessions/clutter, and eat tofu...

  • chdreturns

    You can find Wasabi Kit Kats in Richmond, Virginia too. They are friggin awesome. Of course we happen to have a Japanese Import Food Shop whose owner stocks whatever she can get so they aren't always in stock. Doesn't help the fact that the Kit Kats sell out almost soon as they are stocked.
    We also have a capsule hotel called Sleepbox at Virginia's main airport Dulles International. Virginia is a bit of an oddity compared to other states with the exception of Americas wang (Florida)... But that place is just crazy.

    Around this same time period of the video, I stayed at a hostel fairly close to Akiba. Came with dinner, all the amenities, and for about 10 bucks extra, I had a private room. In total cost me about 31 euro after conversion. I always considered capsule hotels, but hostels, and Airbnb seemed to beat it out 9/10 times in price and such. I guess the best thing these can offer is location. even that doesnt really matter in Tokyo at least in my experience. Still cool though. I guess perfect if you didnt really plan ahead.

    Actually 3,500円 is not really cheap (if you're on tight budget), you could stay at backpacker's lodge or budget business hotel for much less via online reservations. But then again Capsule Hotel is quite a unique experience to try at least once.

    • DogaTv

      Actually, that is pretty cheap. Cheapest you will find is hostels for about 1500-3000 yen. And they are gonna be pretty crappy. I usually stay in the CHEAPEST possible, so I go with the cheap hostels. But if you want a safer, cleaner, and more relaxing stay... then the capsule hotel wouldn't be bad.

    My capsule hotel experience. l stayed in two capaules, one in Cobe and one in Tokyo. The one in Kobe was about 30 euros, but l had it reserved about a month before for 17. It was perfect. Pjs, shaving blade, toothbrush and paste everything free + very clean and specious capsules, big TV etc.
    The one in Tokyo (20minutes walk from station) was forgotten by time. It gave an old 80s vibe but in a bad way. About 22 euros - the most expensive. The one l slept in was sideways! so l had to climb and manuver in order to get in.
    When it comes to hostels the ones in Japan (l stayed in 5 different ones Akb, Osaka, Kyoto, Shinjuku) are like capsule hotels too. Two of them had the same layout as a capsoule hotel, while the other that had two stories beds had curtains all around, making each bed private. the prices between 13/night to 18/night

    Got so excited when you stopped to eat at Torigin. We’ve been going there for years,; every visit to Japan since the 70’s. I love their yakitori and kamameshi! Another entertaining video, Chris!

    We really need some of these in the US. Cheap yet not disgusting hotels are surprisingly rare.

      I thinks its also a case of whether the people care enough to look after it. I feel like most people would just trash it or be loud and inconsiderate of others around them to the point where people wouldnt want to go to them.

      Seriously. I love taking the train to San Fran for the night but the last train out is pretty early, it's nerve wracking to mind. Would love to be able to rent a bed late at night just in case id miss it!

    It just blows my mind what y'all have over there in that half of the world. High-speed trains, capsule hotels like that, tiny countries, huge countries, strange food, street markets, castles, ancient history... I'm jealous. We just have cowboys and bald eagles over here.

    My favorite is the "Calpis" that sounds very tasty. I can guess the flavor just by the name its probably sour with a hint of saltiness.

      Right?! I got delayed half a day last week during layover, then got cancelled. I'm thinking all I want is a little space to get a nap or stay in overnight to get an early flight out. Last thing I wanted was to deal with getting a hotel, getting airline to pay for it, then have to go through security again. I could have just booked flight tomorrow online, got a cube for 30 bucks or so in a terminal to get some rest. Don't need much to get through one night or day. Anyone have the money to invest in this in US?!

    wow, the capsule looks horrifying for a claustrophobic like myself, not sure i could stay there even for one night, though i did spend a month travelling around Australia (my home country) in a Mack truck before it finally got to me 3 weeks in. Really interesting video, surprised i've only just stumbled across your channel.

    Recently I've only gotten these capsule videos and 'why you shouldn't move to Japan' videos recommend to me. YT knows I wanna study in Japan for uni °=°.
    *ALSO* do a video reacting to Grime music's and other parts of modern London culture.

    I remember when capsule hotels first began - a story in Time magazine maybe? Newsweek? I forget now. Anyway, they said some guys live there long term, as if it's an apartment. I wonder if that's still a thing in Tokyo?

  • Yoshii
    Yoshii Year ago

    I think that one of the main reasons that capsule hotels wouldn't work in other areas of the world is simple: hygiene. While people are not the cleanest creatures regardless of where you go, Japan seems to place a much higher value towards appearance, which tends to bleed into clothing and personal care choices. Imagine having some kind of roadside or downtown capsule hotel in something like London or Manchester. In my case, imagine having a capsule hotel in NYC, Sacramento, or Kentucky. People are filthy, discourteous, and openly combative or blunt compared to most of what I've seen from Japan, not to mention illogical.
    I'm not saying that it couldn't work outside of Japan, but it would be viable in very few areas.

    Chris, the sign behind you at 4:29 says "3,500", but shortly after that, you say you spent 4,500 on the capsule hotel. This sounds ridiculous, but is there a 29% tax on the hotel? I'm currently planning a trip to Japan, so cost details have become very relevant to me.

    • S0l0Poly
      S0l0Poly 2 years ago +1

      The sign says from 3500, so maybe he stayed on a weekend or holiday season. The tax is 8%, will be 10 from October. Hope you enjoy japan!

  • snowangelnc

    In Singapore I stayed at Galaxy Pods. It looked like their plan was to take the basic concept, design the capsules to look as cool as possible, and then market them to tourists. They did a good job.
