A new, wonderfully convenient capsule hotel, "nine hours", has opened at Narita Airport. Overnight accommodations, day use, and shower-only choices are available, so each customer can decide which option fits their time schedule the best. Whether that includes a good night's sleep, just a few hours nap, or a brief shower, the sparkling clean facilities, and any-time reception and check-in are a welcome respite from travel fatigue, and lets customers continue on their way bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

Reservations accepted via phone or email. Please note the special opening campaign room rates (2,900 yen) from July 20th through July 31st, 2014 for the first 50 reservations each day.
