Published on 04.27.2016 Sometimes finding a cheap and convenient place to stay near the airport can be a pain. Thankfully, Narita airport now has a capsule hotel in the second terminal called 9hr Narita airport.

The buildings interior design is really flat and easy to understand. There are instructions written throughout the hotel. With it's simple and flat layout, the hotel's interior looks something out of a Sci-fi movie or a spaceship.

Capsule hotels came about towards the end of the rapid economic boom in the 1970s that followed WW2. Many busy Japanese salarymen gather together in saunas or the lobby of different establishments and wait till morning to go to work. So when the World Expo came to Osaka in the 1970s, there was the idea of capsule residences, that was quickly turned into the idea for capsule hotels. A man name Kurokawa Kisho was the one who offered the plan to build capsule hotels, and by 1979 the world's first capsule hotel was built.

The toilets all have little markings indicating where they are. Very cool! It's polished and shiny, just like a washroom, you would see in a high-class hotel.

The capsules all lined up look like something straight out of a sci-fi movie. Also be careful not to disturb the other guests sleeping in their pods!

Even though it is cheaper than a regular hotel, that doesn't necessarily mean that it's uncomfortable. If you are on a budget, or are just interested in sleeping like you are in a sci-fi movie, be sure to check out 9 hr in Narita airport.
