Tokyo Capsule Hotel Can Help You Find Your Zen

Accommodation Hotels Tokyo Kanto

Japan’s capsule hotels, aging shelters once relegated to desperate salaryman who had missed their last train, are experiencing somewhat of a renaissance. The latest to pop up in Tokyo is a minimal teahouse-inspired capsule hotel.

ZenTokyo, which is set to open April, 2019 in Tokyo’s Ningyocho district, fuses the capsule hotel experience with traditional Japanese tea house architecture set forth by Sen-no-Rikyu’s 16th century philosophy. At roughly ¥6,000 (about US$54) per night, the sleeping pods are priced roughly in-line with other capsule hotels, but visitors will be able to choose from three different sleeping styles. Public showers, bathrooms, a study lounge and a bar in the basement that serves green tea-infused drinks round out the amenities.
