You wont get hurt from the steam as they would be standing next to you to give you the instructions and you have to put on the protective sleeve and thick rubber gloves before you can put your food into the steamer. (The staff could speak some English as there were a lot of tourists trying it out)
You paid for your meal right? But you have to steam your own food, you are also requested to wash the dishes and trays after you are DONE! *wide eyed* Interesting experience but the food was a little disappointment as the food was frozen which went straight to be steamed.
Accomodation for the night is Gloria Capsule Hotel. Gasp! Capsule hotel.
Most of the time, capsule hotels in Japan are mainly men only so when I found out about this capsule hotel with a ladies’s only floor, I decided to try it out. It was really cold in this cold corridor, they have air purifiers turned on too.
Communal toilet and washing up area, you can wear your room/locker keys on your wrists. Guests can make use of their inhouse hot spring for your showers. It was an interesting experience but it would had been better if it wasn’t so hot. I guess I wasn’t too bored since I had a TV in the bed else capsule hotels is just for you to sleep if you plan to return late.
Recommended izakaya from my hotel front desk but he wasn’t sure if I can get into this place as it seems to be always full. I decided to have an early dinner at 6pm with no reservations. Since I was alone, they were able to sit me at the counter seating but subsequent patrons with no reservations were all turned away.
My 103JPY buy from Beppu, this nifty neat gadget use for my milk cartons. No more opened milk cartons with their mouths wide open! Smart and cheap gadget.
