Hello! My name is Colm Hanratty from hostelworld.com. And I am in a capsule hotel in Tokyo, in Japan. Because when in Rome do what the Romans do. When in Japan do as Japanese do, because Japanese sleep in these capsules. Quite tight, and this is a capsule in Akihaber. In here is my humble abode for tonight. Just go in here, have look. Yeah. It’s a going to be a fun night sleep. I’ll think of that much. Here you have TV, then you’ve got alarm clock there, radio, and then, I think this is for the, yeah that’s right, when you want to turn out the light, so to speak. And get some keep. And then, this as you can see it’s kind of tight. That’s one side and here’s the other side. And then at the bottom there is the end. Very, very tight keep is going to be. But a very, what’s it be, an interesting night keep, I should say. Anyway, I’m going to go because as you can see, its 2:52. I’m not going to sleep here right now. But only by tonight, I just thought I show it to you, because, I’ve never seen like this before in my life, I should talk to you one more time from Tokyo. Bye-bye!
