Who Needs a Mini Fridge Anyway, Right?

The capsules at Green Plaza Shinjuku. (Eric So)

Tokyo takes economy lodging to the ultimate level with "capsule hotels." These tiny, bare-bones hotel rooms are favorites of Japanese businessmen and brave travellers looking to sleep on the cheap.

In his first-hand account, traveller Eric So likens the experience to sleeping in a coffin or a front-loading dryer... and he kind of liked it! We'll stick with the Hilton.
