What is so great about this airport hotel in Japan?

The concept behind this innovative hotel experience is that during your stay, you will be able to achieve the three fundamental actions you need to recharge after a long day — showering, resting and changing clothes — in just nine hours. With seven hours of restful sleep and an hour each to shower and change, the hotel chain hopes you can start the next day well-rested after staying with them.

The capsules are specially designed to have no sharp edges — like a cocoon — in order to ensure guests feel welcome and comfortable. The capsule provides ample privacy as well as essential features like outlets for charging your devices and an adjustable light switch.

After checking in at the lobby, visitors will receive a bag with towels, slippers, a toothbrush, and sleepwear inside. There are also lockers available for your luggage.

Shower booths come along with shampoo, conditioner, and body soap by the famous brand TAMANOHADA. The airport hotel even changes the scent of its soap depending on the seasons: from mint in the spring and summer to fig in the fall and winter. Expect to feel refreshed and rejuvenated after a soak here!

However, if you just want to take a short nap or quick shower before your next flight, you can also visit the capsule hotel anytime from 9am to 6pm. 

With its tranquil facade and minimalist aesthetic, this airport hotel should definitely be on your transit must-do list the next time you’re at Narita Airport. After all, where else will you get to sleep in a bed that makes you feel like you’ve boarded a spacecraft?
