New “luxury” capsule hotel has computerized lighting, fancy sheets

Capsule02

Product designer Fumie Shibata has created a new concept for a luxury capsule hotel — she is transforming the most barebones way for traveling businessmen to spend the night into a trendy fancy type of thing. It’s called 9 h (Nine Hours) and the first one will open in Kyoto next month. The hotel will include 125 clean, minimalist capsules, as well as lockers, showers, and a communal lounge. Each capsule has its own computerized lighting system by Panasonic and sheets with a thread count equivalent of a four-star hotel. It’s 4,900 yen a night.
