Hey, guys!
It's our first night in Japan ever and we're sleeping at a capsule hotel in Tokyo.
The one we stay at welcomes both men and woman.
However, the floors are divided by gender.
Little did we know while booking that this hotel is located in Koreatown.
So if you're into kpop and Korean food, you're in luck!
Please go up to the reception desk on the eighth floor.
Fei and I are just about to check into our capsule hotel.
My locker number is 543.
Let's take a peep at our guide sheets.
By the way, it's super quiet inside the locker room.
(Unlock with QR key.)
Inside the locker, our amenity bag was waiting.
Let's see what's inside!
Fresh pair of slippers, toothbrush with a mini tube of paste.
There are also PJs which you'll see later.
We take out all we need for the night.
The rest is packed away like a jigsaw puzzle.
That wasn't too challenging.
As for a (pair of) shoes, to the top they go.
It is time to wash up, so Fei and I are gonna get naked and clean.
Spinky, spinky clean.
(Individual shower rooms)
Time to shower!
Oh, the bathroom was trippy.
Between every mirrored panel, there was an equal width of empty space.
As you walk by, you'd get surprised!
Is that person on this side or that side and where am I?
Then I encounter the most friendly toilet of all.
When I entered the stall, it opened its mouth and greeted me with blue light.
(7th floor)
(6th floor)
(5th floor)
(excited yet trying to be quiet)
Wow wow wee waa!
Check out this hallway of two-storied pods.
Each pod was marked to the number, incidentally making the floor look like a ruler.
(silent excitement)
(Party at Fei's tonight!)
(That's my crib.)
The slippers camouflage with the floor.
Let's tidy them up so they don't get confused with the neighbor's.
Upon a closer inspection, there is a dimming switch!
Cool, but not yet.
For the next bit, I had to silent vlog because the neighbors were sleeping.
There's only one outlet?
The pillow look like a curvy bean.
Ooh! A concave shelf, perfect to fit your phone.
About that one outlet dilemma, my phone is in the red zone, so let's charge that first.
Next up, we do a little organization.
I'm uber gentle while handling plastic bags.
Considering how quiet it is, my neighbors will likely hear every crinkle.
I'm learning that this pod is stretched friendly.
The width is narrow enough, so I could push my fingers closer to my toes.
And yes I'm definitely feeling this.
It may be December but it sure is getting toasty in here.
Just a tad.
My eyes are getting heavy, but before retiring to bed, I must edit and upload a video.
It is 11:14 p.m.
I go to the lounge for better posture.
2:45 a.m., making progress.
By the way, I'm turning 30 in about two hours.
I'm the only one here and I like it!
The janitors stopped by and look how neatly he aligned the chairs!
Such precision!
(10 a.m.)
The building looks like it's pointing its index finger into the sky, or even giving a thumbs up.
We just checked out and...
How did you enjoy your sleep?
It was good but it was hot.
Yeah, it was hot.
It felt stuffy.
When I entered the pod around 5 a.m., it did get cooler.
So would you come back here again?
I would though.
- I would. - I would, would you?
It's fun!
- Yeah, it's fun. - It's a lot of fun.
Three days later, I slept at another capsule hotel.
The same company but a different branch.
The one at the Narita airport.
The shower rooms were the same.
A perfect copy and paste.
I noticed a vertical slit above the door.
I reckon it's for steam to escape and to assist in preventing mold.
Here our PJ uniforms are dresses.
At least for the females.
There are sleeping pods for men.
They are on the other side of this hotel.
It's not even 6:00 p.m., but I'm gonna head into my pod.
I'm gonna do some work.
Edit videos...
I'm also hoping to squeeze in some writing time.
Instead of giving the card of the QR-code, here they give us an actual key.
Unlike the north shinjuku branch, this hall has only one side filled with pods.
Still looks cool though.
And the bedding was firm in both experiences.
I was given the upper pod which has its pros and cons.
If you're a light sleeper, I recommend bringing earplugs.
It was mostly quiet until my neighbor farted.
Note to self, avoid eating cheese if you're lactose intolerant.
In the background played the soundtrack of gentle ocean waves.
Stay tuned for more japan videos.
Until then, check out my other travel vlogs and get updates on my social media .
See ya in few days!
