    Stayed at the one in Akihabara. Looks to be the same experience except there was no bathing area, only showers. Great value and experience for $50, I enjoyed it and was rested.

    Why the rule for sitting to shower?

      It is supposed to help keep water from spraying all over the room.

      I’m fine with the rest of the bath situation, but yeah, sitting on that tiny plastic stool is probably going to cause a bigger mess when you’re a big tall guy than standing does. But, I also realize I’m a giant compared to 99% of Japanese men.

    Did you keep your towel on your head?

    Before I read this I just want to say that I wish First Cabin had a loyalty punch card. I stay in their “First Class” capsules all the time, but it’s very clean and very respectful on the female-only floors.

    We stayed at a 3* proper (but non-hot spring) hotel in Katsuyama in Sept. Despite having a bathtub in each room, they still have large common baths in the basement. Nice place to soak after hiking 11 hours up and down Hakusan.
