A hotel with a theme of “a tea ceremony room that you can stay at” is “hotel zen tokyo”, grand-opened in April 2019 in Nihonbashi.

Japanese modern guest rooms are so stylish spaces that you cannot think that the hotel is a capsule hotel.

The hotel is perfectly equipped with a work lounge convenient for working and with a bar lounge for enjoying Japanese sake and cocktails made with Japanese liquor.

The hotel looks a bit different from existing capsule hotels, so you may feel easy to stay at both for business and for sightseeing.

*A capsule hotel is an accommodation facility looks like capsules are in a row, where guests have a privacy in a capsule.

It was unique in Japan before, but now a hotel in such style is spreading to the world.
