If you’re planning a far eastern adventure, then be sure to include a visit to one of Tokyo’s many capsule hotels – one of our favourites is the Riverside Capsule Hotel in Asakusa district.

A uniquely Japanese experience, capsule hotels are inspired by the pursuit of efficiency of space and functional comfort – which basically means you won’t have room to swing a cat!

But don’t let that put you off! We’ll admit that the capsules do resemble human-sized microwaves, but these futuristic, tube-like compartments are actually pretty comfortable.

Accommodation is arranged dormitory style, but female travellers needn’t worry! The Riverside Capsule Hotel offers a ladies only floor, which means you won’t have to put up with any snoring from the encapsulated male guests.
