Japan's evolutionary capsule hotel in Tokyo goes against boutique hotels with a rooftop pool and sauna and a panoramic view of the city's landmark building, the Tokyo Skytree.
Japan's passion for capsule hotels dates back to the 70s when the first ones appeared. At first, they were a necessary step towards affordable accommodation, mainly aimed at job-searching men and salarymen who worked long hours or went for drinks and missed their last train.
As the concept evolved, the focus shifted toward tourism, and capsule hotels started catering to both genders, although initially in a segregated version. The main reason behind it is the spa section whereby Japanese traditions people wear no clothes.
