Want to see the world's smallest hotel room? Follow me and I will show you the Capsule Hotel in Tokyo. The check-in process is very similar to a regular hotel. You can walk in and then ask for a room. I am given a yukata-style uniform, and my pod number is number sixteen, and this is a key for my locker. We are going to head to the locker first and leave my bags and belongings there.

Here, on the diagram, you see two numbers for one section, so this indicates that it has two bunks, an upper bunk and a lower bunk. Let us check out where number fifteen is; it is just across the hall. Here we are. It is pretty spacious, huh? Not exactly a coffin, although slightly larger than that—just enough space for a person to sleep and sit in. As you step inside, you manage to notice there is a pillow, blanket, mattress, light adjustment here. We have a fan attachment here as well, and even a small television. Yes, they managed to fit a small television in a Capsule pod.

Early in the morning, an alarm starts going off, hinting guests to check out. Restrooms and bath areas are communal. The hotels are largely used by office workers who have missed their last train. Most of the guests are male, but there are some Capsule Hotels that have a separate section for females as well. At some of them, you can even buy new shirts and pants for your new day. Per night's stay is somewhere between twenty-five to fifty dollars, not bad for a city like Tokyo. I had a pleasant time in the Capsule Hotel, and now I am going to check out. This is Rioko, showing you Tokyo.
