We thought super-cramped capsule hotels were pretty much the epitome of squeezy sleeps in Tokyo. But no, we were wrong, of course. If you stay in one of these geki-sema share houses, it’s probably not much different from bunking in a locker. Of course, toilets and shower facilities are shared and not part of the locker-like apartment — it’s not Narnia. At under US$600 a month, this is a pretty pricey locker.
