Shinjuku, Tokyo – A new capsule hotel-cum-internet café has opened in the Shinjuku area of Tokyo that aims to dispel negative views of internet cafés.
The Booth Net Café & Capsule is comprised of three spaces. Customers can socialise in the open café booth while browsing the internet, or take a look at the vast collection of manga comics on display. For private browsing, they can move to softly lit net café micro-booths. If in need of some rest, they can rent a capsule booth for the night.
Designed by interior designers Fan Inc, the space is a far cry from typical internet cafés, which in the age of home broadband and connected devices are considered old and outdated.
The Big Picture: The Booth Net Café & Capsule is another example of the changing face of Tokyo’s leisure spaces. To find out more, read our Run Stations microtrend.
