Fodor's Review

Travelers looking for a budget option—or adventurous souls wanting a full-immersion experience—seek out the Capsule Inn. After changing out of your clothes (for which lockers are provided), bathing in the communal bath, and donning your yukata, you locate your accommodation, which will be one of the chambers stacked on each floor not unlike pet carriers at a kennel. Crawl inside the 3-foot-wide opening, lie down, stretch out (as much as the 6.5-foot length will allow),

and the next thing you know it'll be morning. Each capsule has a TV and a radio. The seventh floor has a lounge with beer, snacks, and reclining chairs from which to view a TV. Spare underwear and neckties are for sale in the lobby.
