Tokyo Mens Only Capsule Hotel & Lounge Chair Stay Experience

We’re back at another capsule hotel in Tokyo and this time is a retro one ー and it’s men only! (And we’ll answer the question of why?)

The Salaryman World of the 1970s is still alive at this capsule hotel in Okachimachi, Tokyo. It’s a throwback to an era when men worked late and women stayed at home. Although there are now women-only capsule hotels and pods that take both men and women, the capsule hotel and sauna we’re visiting is still men’s only and has no desire to change ー and that’s its attraction! It’s authentic.

Since the tourist boom to Japan started in 2014, new capsule hotels have been popping up in Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto that cater specifically to the needs of tourists. The modern decor and new hotel-like services raise the price for a stay, but Spa Resort President is no such place. It’s a refuge for guys, very few foreigners and a unique feeling of being trapped in time. Privacy is minimal, the bath is excellent and the food is outstanding! It’s what Japanese guys are used to.

I have to admit, it’s not an experience for everyone. It seems perfect for backpackers or people who just need a pad to crash — guys only — but for this episode, we all get a look inside and see what an all male capsule hotel is like. Leave a comment and tell me what you think? Would you stay here?
