NINEHOURS: The Coolest Capsule Hotel In Tokyo


Business trips, travels, or overtime work. What features are required for overnight stays in urban hotels? Resetting your day, from one day to the next, needs three basic actions: take a shower, sleep, and get yourself dressed. We simply replace these actions with the time spent: one hour + seven hours + one hour. Based on this most straightforward concept of staying in a hotel, ninehours offers ideally simple urban stay unlike any other in the world. It is said that the time of staying in a hotel for a business traveler is approximately nine to ten hours.


Neither more nor less that that. A hotel stay should preferably be simple, time when you can relax and be yourself. Ninehours is the concept of staying with seven hours sleep combined with an additional hour for sleeping and grooming. Simply designed, ninehours has neither inconsistency nor meaningless decoration.


All the objects fit into one of three design categories: FLAT, FORM, and TEXTURE. Each category has its own appropriate value, simple and satisfying. No luxuries and yet contentment is created by a new form of (design) practicality.There are roughly two patterns of a hotel stay.


One is a long stay designed for enjoyment or leisure: “relaxing and taking your mind off stress”, and the other is a short stay: “visiting a place for a certain purpose such as a business trip”. ninehours will set up a new theory, finding satisfaction and contentment in “a short stay in an urban setting”.


Do countless possessions make you happy? ninehours believes in seeking out the essentials. It is not only a process of elimination, but one also of development, improving the necessary items to their optimal forms. If a traditional hotel is like a luxury liner, a good comparison of ninehours can be a 15 feet cruiser. Imagine you are in an airport.


People from all over the world, they stop here and then they fly away. ninehours is a place like that for people traveling around Japan. It is a gentle way station, imagine a place to transit . An infrastructure is defined to be a key urban structure. It remains constant, unchanging and reliable, even over the course of time.


ninehours aspires to be an infrastructure to supporting business lifestyles.Situated across Japan, ninehours has 55 branches, all offering the same consistent services and facilities. In the city a place, offering, space and comfort. Many hotels compete with each other to create a relaxing atmosphere within the walls of a hotel.


Urban cities offer a uniquely interesting and exciting experience, stepping outward, making people more accessible to this, is ninehours. It would be a shame to miss out on visiting the city.


Manners come to light in any places where people interact. They help to foster good relations. Rules can be forced and restricting, but manners act as a union, bringing people together. ninehours is a communal space for people to relax and be comfortable. ninehours begins as a place for people who appreciate and share common courtesy.


The term “Capsule hotel” conjures up images of unease, confinement and discomfort. ninehours has well thought of suitable services on hand and each comfortable unit makes for a restful sleep.


Ninehours aims at defying the traditional vision of “Capsule Hotels” through the creation of realistic functions and the flow of people. We believe that eliminating preconceptions helps at building new qualities.
