TOKYO CAPSULE HOTEL TOUR IN JAPAN | Male vs Female Experience

TOKYO CAPSULE HOTEL TOUR IN JAPAN | Male vs Female Experience


One of our bucket list items in Japan was
to spend a night in a capsule hotel. So before leaving Tokyo we booked a night
at 9 hours. A futuristic capsule hotel that pretty much
looks like a spaceship. This pod hotel is located by Shin-Okubo station
right in the heart of Korea Town and in this video we’re going to share the whole experience
with you guys. So we are just waiting for the elevator now. The reception is surprisingly on the 8th floor
not the first. The eight. Exactly. So up we go. The check-in process was simple and straight
forward. We were each given a card with a qr code which
would act as our key for the duration of our stay. We checked out the views of our neighborhood
and also learned that the capsules for men and women are on separate floors. Okay. So this is the part where Sam and I have to
go our separate ways. Yep. Different floors. Different floors for men and women. So I’m on the 6th floor and I’m on the 4th. And yeah I guess we’ll each take our own camera
and show you are own experience. Indeed. And we’ll meet back here in a bit. I went up to the 6th floor to find my locker
and store my belongings. All of the lockers have an overnight kit to
make each guest stay at the capsule hotel a little more comfortable. A look inside the bag coming up soon. I also discovered that my suitcase was a little
too plump for my locker so some pushing and prodding ensued. So yeah I was able to finally squeeze in the
main suitcase. I feel like these lockers aren’t designed
for square rectangular bags. And inside I had this little bag already waiting
for me. It looks like we have a towel, some slippers
and PJs. So we’re going to take a closer look and see
what we actually got in this bag. It looks like we have slippers with the 9
hours logo. We have a towel. We’ve got some pajamas to put on. This is going to be fun. And what else is there? What else is there? Oh okay toothpaste. Toothbrush. All set. That is our kit for spending the night at
a capsule hotel. So yeah let’s actually go check out my capsule. So before going into the dorm with all of
the capsules we have to take off our shoes and put on slippers. So I’m all set. The Spaceship. Even though it was the middle of the afternoon
I was ready to explore my pod. First up a little stretch test to see just
how much space there is in one of these capsules. Stretch Test. Not bad. Not bad. I definitely didn’t feel claustrophobic in
there so that is a good start. So here is the guy’s elevator. In we go. So on the 4th floor. Fourth floor I go. This is going to be such an experience. Time to scan in. So I’m just given this card and apparently
I just swipe it like this. See if it works. Open sesame. Open sesame. Wow. And inside here guys I’ve got some kind of
care package which I’ll show you fully in a bit. I have hangers. I have storage space down here for my bag. And I have a spot for my shoes. Up here. Guys I’m not sure if my bag is going to fit. I’ve tried once but couldn’t quite get it
in there. So I’ll try to unpack a bit and see if I can
jam it in. I had to put it in upside down. Wow. It is time for me to get out of this and into
official capsule hotel wardrobe. So apparently I go to the 7th floor to change. Bathroom Tour. And here is the shower room. Let’s check it out. Oh wow. Look at that. So a quick tour in here guys. My care pack of course. I’ve got my tripod which I hope to get some
shots from. My slippers which I’ve yet to put on. My gear. Hahaha. My hotel capsule gear and last but not least
the shower. Showerhead. Oh check that out different kinds of soaps
and shampoos. That is pretty cool conditioner. Another conditioner. That is a shampoo. And to adjust the water pressure and heat. Let’s get changed. Snap. Check it out a little short in the arms and
on the legs. Look at that. Haha. Argh. It’ll do though. It’ll do. Time to check out the sleep pod. Shhhh. So here is my pod 436. Woah. Look at that. So before I go in I’m going to give you a
walking tour. Look at this. These are the different room numbers and you
have lower level and upper level. This is crazy. Check out this guys. Stretch Test 2.0. Alright guys so we are all checked in to the
capsule hotel. We’ve had a snoop around. Um but it is like whisper quiet. Yes. I almost feel like we can’t even speak. Basically everywhere there is signs to be
quiet. Yeah. So we’re in Koreatown we’ve decided to go
out for Korean food for dinner. Yes. So yeah we’re going to tell you a bit more
about what we’ve seen and experienced over there. Wow. Two kinds of cheeses guys. Well it looks like we are ready to eat. We sure are. We ordered the exact same dish we had last
time we were in Korea Town. Yep. Because it is so good. So we’re having Cheese Deok Galbi.That seems
to be the Korean specialty in this neighborhood. Yeah. Featured at most restaurants. So yeah it is basically like a spicy chicken
with lots of ooey gooey melted cheese and rice cakes. And some veggies. We have two kinds of melted cheese here. We’ve got mozzarella and cheddar. Show us how big that cheese stretches. Look at that. Look at that. Yes. But anyways this is not going to be a food
video today. We actually want to talk about the capsule
hotel where we are staying. Yeah. And share some of our impressions so far. So yeah first things first. It is so quiet and there is already people
sleeping in there in the middle of the afternoon. Yep. Like we checked in at one o’clock. Yeah. And I went straight to my little capsule and
some of the doors were already closed. Like people were in there. So my first impressions were when I stepped
into the sleeping quarters the actual capsule area I felt like I was on a rocketship. A futuristic rocketship. Like those were the sleeping quarters on my
spaceship. And the other thing that really surprised
me too was I thought that the actual capsules would be smaller than what they were. Like I fit in fairly well. Yeah. And I could sit up and like you know kind
of move around a little bit. Put my arms out like this. And so that really surprised me. I thought it was going to be bit more like
a coffin. Oh my gosh. Do you know what I mean. Sounds horrible. Yeah but so it was a bit more spacious than
I thought. Yeah. I have no idea what it is going to be like
to sleep there overnight. If it is going to be noisy or quiet or what. And the other thing that I wanted to mention
as well is that I’ve seen a few capsule hotels that have a lot of amenities in the capsule
itself. Yeah. Kind of like TVs, radio, headphones. Yeah kind of like a sauna and a spa area as
well. Bathing areas. Yeah like some of them have fancy spas. I’m being a little loud in this restaurant
aren’t I? Um but anyways this one is quite basic. So you basically just have like a little shelf
where you can rest your phone. And they have a USB port where you can charge
your phone. Yep. But aside from that there isn’t a whole lot
inside the capsule-like you have your duvet, you have your pillow. Yep. And that is about it. But it seems comfy enough. I can stretch out. So yeah the test will be how well do we sleep
tonight but I’m excited. I’m looking forward to it. Okay so we are back at the capsule hotel. Yep. Once again my plan is to actually crawl into
the pajamas they gave us and maybe do a bit of work on my computer. I’m crawling into the pajamas and I’m going
to take a nap. Alright. I got up at 5am to feed cats this morning
so I’m pretty tired. Sam has been feeding stray cats. Local stray cat feeder. The Lounge. After dinner we went back to the 8th floor
which aside from the reception also holds a lounge area. This is a communal area with seating space,
a big shared table and individual workstations where you can plug-in and charge your electronics. We spent a bit of time here until it was time
to go to bed on our separate floors. It is now finally time for bed. Goodnight. I went to the 6th floor. Sam went to the 4th. And by the looks of it someone was still pretty
amazed by the size of their capsule. ZZZ. Good Morning. What the? Woah. So if this place wasn’t cool enough they have
a toilet that greats you. As far as the experience of staying in the
capsule hotel here in Tokyo, Japan has even exceeded my expectations. It has just been it has been surreal really. The showers were also pretty nice. They had individual stalls complete with body
wash, shampoo and hair conditioner so you didn’t have to worry about pulling out your
toiletries. And there were also enough stalls that you
didn’t even have to think about standing in line waiting for a shower to free up. And this is where you dispose of your slippers
when your stay is over. And other garbage too. Checking out. It is time to check out and why yes we are
wearing the same clothes we had on yesterday because it is going to be a sweaty travel
day. Yep. Let’s go down. And just like that our stay at the Nine Hours
Tokyo Capsule Hotel was over. Okay so it is time for final thoughts on our
first and only capsule hotel experience. Yeah. What did you think? How was your night? Yeah because we were sleeping in different
areas. I had a great sleep. I went to be about 11 pm woke up at five and
I slept continuously. I do have to say when I woke up I was noticing
sounds. Snoring. What kind of sounds? Snoring. Farting. Some gas. Some farting. A little bit of coughing. And so yeah it kind of has that dorm kind
of atmosphere. It does. Yes. So there wasn’t any coughing or farting on
my dorm but like there were lots of girls on their phones right before going to bed. So like you could hear them chatting in different
languages. You know like goodnight blah blah blah. So yeah it did take me a while to fall asleep
just because when everyone is getting settled into their bunks it kind of like makes yours
shift and shake a little. Um and you hear all of the sounds. Argh but yeah I did sleep well. I slept all the way through until seven thirty
in the morning when Sam texted me like where are you? I was up much earlier than you. Overall I would recommend staying in a capsule
hotel but I think just for one night. Yes. I don’t think you’d want to be in there for
multiple nights. I would agree. I would want to experience it once here in
Japan but I don’t need to sleep in a capsule for a week or a month. No. Like no way. Yeah, exactly. Book a hotel or an apartment or something
else. Yep. So yeah that is it for now we’ll see you guys
in the next video. Bye. Bye.

  1. Love this video ❤️ Japan’s capsule hotels are definitely on my bucket list. You guys rock! Sam always gives me a good laugh

  2. I love how both of you did hilarious stretching in the pods, especially Sam. I was amazed how big the pods were as well! They look surprisingly comfortable for being so small.

  3. Another great superbly edited video ! amazing filming as well with tons of different angles , felt like I was actually there visiting .Thanks so much for sharing !

  4. I like your black slippers. Usually hotels give you the white ones but apparently everything is different in Japan 😉😉

  5. Amazing video like always. I might be going to Tokyo this summer and y’alls videos have helped a lot. What area would u recommend to stay if I’m going for a week

  6. Looks like a cool experience guys and one I think we'd like to try sometime.😉 They look very cosy. Who was snoring ? Sam or Audrey? 😲

  7. Not sure the capsule thing would suit me as I snore when asleep (according to my wife – so does she but won't admit to it) also I'm too fat to bend like you young things. Great video as always!

  8. Reminded me of the Fifth Element. I'd be fighting claustrophobic thoughts all night long inside that pod but looks worth it just for the anecdote. Great video guys!

  9. Hi,guys! Another very interesting video! How was the shower at the capsule hotel? Was it comfortable!? My mom said that there's no way she could stay there as she is claustrophobic! Lol.

  10. I've seen a video on this hotel previously but the videos are vastly different in editing styles and commentary.I love them both nonetheless😊😊

  11. No window, no curtain, no moon light, no breeze- very minimalistic to the core. 🙂 Not a healthy way to spend even a night. Instead of wishing 'Good night' one can opt for R I P .! Sam, why a break in releasing India videos? Wishes from Chennai, India.

  12. That looked so interesting. But I think Audrey summed it up quite well, I would also prefer this to be a one night experience.

  13. Plus-side being it would be great coffins if the "big one" struck dead of night….if that is consolation (womp-womp) – Japanese efficiency can be a bit to much, I think – nothing like the chaos of India to counterbalance that sort, ay Sam…:-)

  14. Oh my goddd, in nine days start my trip, and the first nigth in Japan is in the 9H Shinjuku!!! Huge coincidence. P.D: when you come to Argentina must go to eat at "Sarkis" traditional middle east food. Remember that name

  15. First time seeing a capsule hotel experience vlog… came here after watching your Indian tour. This one is on different level highly advanced and modernized. Nice couple, Sam seems like a sweet and mild-mannered person.

  16. Cool video, thanks for sharing. I am interested in doing this. But I worry it'd be super warm in there, how was the temperature?

  17. some ten years ago , capsule hotels were seen as midnight shelter for drunken people who lost his last train, but now changed stylishly.

  18. Wow, me being bored and aimless:) I have watched a lot of clips on YouTube on capsule hotels and this one indeed completes it 🙂 Thinking back I wish back in the the 90's when I was a student at UFT and later on at York University, such a concept did exist! Lastly, excuse me for my grammar mistakes, coz I am still an ESL student being 44 🙂

  19. Honestly, the farting sound really annoys me as well when I am at a capsule hotel 🙂 🙂 🙂 cheers……what a great vid….once again and being repetitive: "thanks for sharing"

  20. I stayed at the Yotel Heathrow during a 9 hour layover. These are not pods, but miniature rooms. Excellent decision. I arrived exhausted and with very bad motion sickness. Made it to the Yotel, sacked out and made my next flight in much better condition. The toilet and shower are located in each unit. Nicely outfitted. Book by the hour.

  21. I loved the capsule size. I stayed there for 6 nights. The bad side is that you have to check out everyday until 10 a.m. even if you stay for continuous nights. In time: you can't pay for all nights at once, so each day you have to do the same process, but you get the same capsule you had the night before and your stuff can be kept in the locker.

  22. Thank you, your video is really complete, I’m going to Japan this weekend and I’ll probably stay in a capsule hotel. Now, I get a more accurate idea about this 🙂 Just a question: even if I book for several days, do I have ti check in/check out every day? So do I have to free the locker every day? Thank you 🙂 an italian guy

  23. Muy interesante! ! Aunque pareció no muy agradable la experiencia. Me encantan los vídeos , son muy buenos los veo en español y también veo su canal en inglés, para aprender a hablar el idioma. Audrey, eres super linda y Samuel se desenvuelve muy bien en este canal. Me gustaría que hablara mejor el españo, una pareja muy linda! ! Les mando un gran abrazo y saludos de Oaxaca, México.

  24. I'm surprised they didn't have 'ambient sound' offerings in the pods…..that would block out unwanted noise from other pods and hallway…..and even relax travelers….

    I think that little thing would be a huge winner for them.

  25. Cool video! First time viewer, absolutely love your vibe and style…..so, I subbed!!! Can't wait to binge on other videos!!!

  26. I would think I would need a couple of beers to sleep in such a place but I would worry about waking up in the night and having to go to another floor to use the restroom.

  27. Can you leave the capsule hotel when you want to go out or something for example a cigarette and come back whenever you want ?

  28. You are guys are adorable. Thanks for the tour. Capsules are a bit too small for my liking & I'm 4'11". I guess I like my space….lol

  29. Thanks.. 👏💑⚙⌚✊🤝✌💓💞💧💥💥💥🚶🚶‍♀🌈🛫🛬🌏👍😃😃😃🌹🌹💑💞👋👋👋👋👋👋👋👋👋👋
