Somewhere between a capsule hotel and a business hotel, First Cabin offers rooms that are a little more spacious than your average capsule accommodation. The company was founded in 2006, and has expanded to include 19 locations nationwide, with eight locations in Tokyo alone.
The word “cabin” is the perfect term to describe the compact suites on offer. Depending on your budget and how much space you want, you can choose between four different types – First Class, Business Class, Premium Economy Class, and Premium Class. Except for the Premium Class cabins, the capsules are divided up into men’s and women’s areas, and they offer public baths, showers, powder rooms, and even a bar at some of the locations.
