Nine Hours the capsule hotel company opened ºC Ebisu (pronounced Doh C Ebisu) in December last year. Architect Jo Nagasaka undertook the interior design work as he did in his renovation of Blue Bottle Coffee in Kiyosumi-Shirakawa and numerous other properties. These renovations have brought capsule hotels to a new level, combining conventional facilities with saunas that create steam from water sprayed on heated stones, better known as löyly saunas. Add to this a cool down space using TOTO’s most recently unveiled shower, the Warm Pillar. Imagine being enveloped in a blanket of water, gently falling straight down to minimize splashing. Over the years, saunas have been the exclusive right of men, but at the Nine Hours capsule hotels, women are more than welcome. Whatever your need, stay the night, take a rest or relax in a sauna after work, offers a refreshing break.
