9h Capsule Hotel

Check out this new capsule hotel that just opened last December. 9h is located in Kyoto, ready to service the burnt-out businessman or the broke backpacker 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. I love the concept and the simple pictograms. Everything looks so futuristic!

Monocle has your video of, what is, a joint collaboration between Fumie Shibata (amenities), Masaaki Hiromura (graphic design) and Takaaki Nakamura (interior design).

      funny you say that. I actually have some Japanese ceramic posts lined up for this week.

  3. Hi Johnny S.,
    I do say funny things. Thank you.
    One thing I don’t like is a hotel room that’s like a sweater and I feel like I’m wearing it.

  5. I have read about this project on other blogs as well. My opinion is that such an invention will prove to be very useful for people that haev a busy schedule and have to travel a lot.

  6. Is this place for real? Looks like that reservation they had in that Tom Cruise movie, The Island. I wonder how many cheap hotel reservations have already been made and how many of those people are happy with the accommodation.
