Kelly and I had only one night in Osaka, so we thought it’d be fun (and cheap) to stay in a capsule hotel. We stayed in the Asahiplaza Shinsaibashi Capsule Hotel. It was pretty interesting. First, we had to take our shoes off and put them into little shoe lockers. We were then issued keys and sent downstairs to the Ladies’ Zone, which was locked off from the unruly male population. There were lockers for our luggage (flashbacks of high school gym class), and we were supplied with pajama things, which Kelly was forced to wear because she forgot her pajamas in her other luggage. They had a lavatory area with sinks and chairs, a “relaxation” room with newspapers and a massage chair, a little room with tables and a vending machine, and a bath area. The capsules took up another wing.
There was plenty of privacy, and the capsules themselves were spacious and comfortable!
The adventures continue tomorrow!
