We wanted to stay in a capsule hotel someday in Japan.
A capsule hotel basically is a hotel in which you sleep alone in a capsule. A small area about 7 feet long (if you're lucky), 4 feet wide and 4 feet high. They are stacked two high and the only thing between you and the hallway (and sound and so on) is a pull down curtain...yes a curtain. BUT since I should be able to sleep after the giant plane flight there, it should be okay and funny at the same time...definitely an experience. Here are a couple shots of a typical capsule hotel..

The next couple days after we are going to the complete opposite of the capsule hotel. We'll be heading out of Tokyo to a tiny small area in the mountains and stay at a traditional inn along the river. I've embedded a map location of where it is below. It's called Kashiwaya Ryokan.
Out there will be nice and peaceful. There are hiking trails, a beautiful river flowing through, a small restaurants and a coffee shop. We get breakfast and supper included in the price and in the rooms and we will book private open air bath's both nights there.
That's about all we've booked thus far. Trying to figure out an itinerary. Should have it figured out by the end of the weekend I think...
I think I'm going to go for a short walk and then enjoy the evening and weekend.
Have a good weekend!!
