9h: A Japanese Capsule Hotel

Japanese travel and lifestyle channel Rachel & Jun overview their stay at a Japanese capsule hotel called nine hours, 9h for short:

I was sure I’d heard of it before - turned out I did, on travel and culture blog Randomwire, which covers 9h’s design approach and capsule hotels in general more extensively.

I remember 9h coming off as extremely minimalistic, maybe even monolithic. Yet it’s utopian, "verging on monastic" as Randomwire put it, despite the small spaces. Rachel & Jun’s video somewhat confirms that; I was quite delighted to learn about the white noise feature within the capsule.
