The capsule hotel is a distinctly Japanese concept catering to business men who have missed their last train home and/or are too drunk to make it home. But a new kind of capsule hotel is now offering grace and redemption to ashamed business men. First Cabin, which recently opened in Osaka, the birth town of capsule hotels, recreates the experience of first-class flying for just $50 a night. The space was designed by Tadasu Ohe of Plantec Architects, who also happens to sit on the board of directors.
