A mere four minute walk from the Namba Subway Station in Osaka is Japan’s famous spa capsule hotel. Unlike normal hotels where you book a self-contained room, the Capsule Hotel offers brand new spacious sleeping capsules with a bed and a wall mounted television. You will also get a locker to stow your luggage for the duration of your stay. The rooms are completely soundproof and lightproof so you can sleep at any hour of the day. You will, however, share bathrooms with other guests.
This men’s only hotel is characteristic of Japanese ingenuity for making use of limited spatial resources. The hotel offers many amenities and services including a 24 hour fitness center, a spa, saunas, and a rooftop bar and restaurant with a view of Osaka. You can also opt to use their year round indoor pool during the day and spend the night having a few drinks and dancing in the on-site nightclub.
