Small doesn’t mean claustrophobic at Hotel Zen Tokyo, an unconventional take on the traditional capsule hotel. Instead of sleeping in a glorified drawer, stretch out in a zen-inspiring “pod” with pristine white sheets and full standing-room space. Borrowing from simple, modern teahouse aesthetics, Hotel Zen provides everything you need from toothbrushes and towels to toner and slippers, as well as a convenient common area with all the mod-cons: laundry, WiFi and vending machines. Forgot your PJs? Fear not, they have a selection available for rent.
Sushiya no Nohachi in Asakusa is famed for serving some of the smallest sushi in the world. It’s made-to-order with a single grain of rice and free with a minimum spend.
