A Must-See in Yokohama for Male Lovers of Bishojo Anime! Capsule Hotel “Business Inn New City”

Writer : tinyasu

“Business Inn New City” is a male-exclusive capsule hotel with day trip bathing facilities.
It’s garnered a lot of attention as a capsule hotel with themes likes bishojo anime, ninjas, and oiran.
It features 5 types of baths and 2 types of saunas, and it also offers short-term stays.
Since I had already come out here, I stayed in their capsule with the most impactful theme.

It was built in a renovated old capsule hotel building.
The building is close to Yokohama Minato Mirai, so it’s in a great location for sightseeing.

I didn’t take any photos of them, but the large public baths had tatami mats and were very comfortable, almost like one in a luxury ryokan (Japanese inn).
I also liked seeing that amenities like towels and pajamas were available for free.

The character used is a popular one from Anison Café “Stars” on the basement floor!
I’m not particularly into it, but this could be really neat if you’re a fan.

You can read as many of the 25,000 volumes of manga here as you’d like, but it’s also a smoking area, so I couldn’t make much use of it since I hate smoke.
Too bad!
