Sleep in a Real Sleeper-Train-Turned-Hostel

Accommodation Trains Hostel Cheap Second Time in Japan Tokyo Kanto

Why stay in a typical budget hotel when you can crash at a unique themed hostel instead?

The Hokutosei Hostel is designed like the inside of a sleeper train—and that's because that is exactly what it was. After Japan's first luxury sleeper train was decommissioned, the interior was dissected and used to create the Hokutosei Hostel. From the seating, beds, ladders, lounge, shared guest kitchen and more, go back in time and experience transportation like you never will again; but, without the motion sickness.
