Author Tom Fotheringham ( ago)
I know what they play on those TVs. Also, they used to have glass doors on them but there was a fire in one which caused a bit of scare because the doors jammed in the heat.

Author Johnny Fun stuffs ( ago)
it looks a lot bigger inside

Author cominatrix ( ago)
i personally appreciate the fact that you do (essentially) cold opens instead of some useless "hey gaaaiz!"
also im really entertained by you eating for whatever reason. its a good time. i like that you got the special double capsule. did it cost more or was it the luck of the draw?

i thought you said cowpiss............. no offence.

Author Clare Abbott ( ago)
I'm sorry but because of your accent it definitely sounds like you're saying "cow piss" when you say "calpis". I'm sorry I'm just an ignorant Canadian without a fun accent.

Whenever I hear calpis it always sounds like cow piss

Author vandit6354 ( ago)
I was in Ginza today and didn't see any wasabi kit Kat's, then again I've already posted a crate of matcha kitkats back to London... that'll keep me going for a while....

Minimalism makes you happier. I'd be happy living in one of these things. Just need my laptop, phone and I would spend my free time in the world.

Author pokenei ( ago)
wouldn't work for me. I fart constantly. would stank up the whole hotel.

Author BanjoOz ( ago)
I've been wanting to see you do a video on coffin hotels since you started your channel, since I'm fascinated by them and every other vlogger and their dog in Japan has done "staying at a capsule hotel" videos but I wanted one that was a) more than just "here I am in a capsule hotel" and b) done in your unique style. Thanks!

Author super117knight ( ago)
you know what would be nice
a video in which you explain how to get started with living in japan
what you need, what things you need to know etc.

Author Milo Taylor ( ago)
There's something admirable about a guy not breaking off a piece of that Kit Kat bar and just biting two pieces at once.

Author Emily Edmonds ( ago)
I'm curious about safety in these capsules. What if there's a fire? That would concern me.

Author The Mushroom of Death ( ago)
The main problem was you didn't break the kitkat in half before eating it.

Author Scruffy P ( ago)
That foot bath looked amazing. You could just sit there on a hot day and chat to your best friend. I wonder if it's warm in the winter.

Thanks for posting this. They actually look more roomy than I'd been led to believe. Given I'm sumo-sized, I'd been concerned about using a capsule hotel.

Great little insight to Tokyo thank you. I love all the different heights of your shots and angles. I reckon the hotel staff were having a laugh with you and that 'footbath' was actually an ornamental feature. ;)

Why does Japan seem so rabid about gender segregation? That's so foreign to me.

Lord I would be terrified when waking up. Usually the sunglight from outside or just the lights is easing but waking up to literally pitch black would scare the crap out of me!

Sometimes your vlogs reminds me of Michael Palin's travel series, because of your sarcastic personality.

They should ban feminists from going there, because they are going to complain about how it is sexist that they separate females from males.

4500¥ is about £32 at the moment
That's not bad at all for a capsule,
But why is the same capsule 5500¥ if you're a female ?

Author Pot Ato ( ago)
It would be a great idea in the UK,
Hotels are too expensive and hostels don't have enough privacy,
Capsules would be somewhere in between, I'd use them 100%
Wouldn't use a hostel tho.

Author Clorox ( ago)
When he said calpis it sounded like cow piss wtf

Author Caolan Robinson ( ago)
how much ¥ does it cost? i would stay in this as all i do in my room anyway is sleep and watch tv and it would be cool to meet people there

Author dracoes ( ago)
Interesting video, thank you! I had a couple of random questions though:

1) Were they comfortable to sleep in? Good mattress etc?
2) The showers actually looked communal rather than single-person - is that the case?
3) Were they noisy? Couple of people joked about fapping noises but in all seriousness could you hear much outside the capsule?
4) Whats the dress code in the mens area? I see you're wearing a dressing gown or something and you mentioned half-naked guys wandering around.
5) What time is check-out usually?
6) Are they popular with tourists generally, or do you get locals / workers and such using them too?
7) Would you stay in one again?

Author Unsilenced Chaos ( ago)
I would love there to be a capsule hotels in the uk
