The capsule hotel gets a slick reboot at this chain with branches in Shinjuku, Asakusa, and other handy locations in Tokyo.

Admittedly, sleeping in a pod that’s 220cm deep, 110cm tall and 110cm wide won’t be everybody’s cup of tea, but if claustrophobia isn’t an issue the sleek-industrial design and gender-separated sleeping areas make Nine Hours a great budget option.

And while capsule hotels are ordinarily a single-night refuge for businesspeople working or drinking after the last train, multi-night stays are possible.

That said, with 10 branches in and around the city, it can also be a cheap way to hop one night at a time around different neighborhoods, and the Narita Airport branch is very handy if you arrive late or fly out early.
