Got there in the morning and the place was closed until four in the afternoon. Having to spend the whole day in the city with luggage wasn't our plan. Luckily an old lady helped us getting in touch with staff who just happened to walk around outside and they gladly took care of our things. Nice job, bad policy (not being open before 4pm). Anywho, the staff was really friendly and capsules fun....for ten minutes. Then all the downsides of not knowing any Japanese and therefore had no use for the TV was quickly apparent. Showers and "recreation" room was ok and I can't blame the Japanese people for walking around naked everywhere, even in the tv-room, I guess thats my problem and just their ways. :) Also it was kind of boring having my girlfriend on another floor, but of course that is necessary with all the nakedness. Although I don't regret the stay. I can cross out one more thing on my bucket list! Also everyone was really polite and quite on my floor, surprisingly (or not) on the womens floor they chatted all night and my girlfriend couldn't sleep. Luckily the World Cup was on in the reception area so we could watch that. And yes, got some nice capsule pics to show off too. Big plus! Do it, but don't expect much!
