The space

This is rare opportunity to stay at historical Nakagin Capsule Tower.
Designed by Kisho Kurokawa in 1972, Nakagin Capsule Tower is a rare built example of Japanese Metabolism, a movement that became emblematic of Japan's postwar cultural resurgence. The building was the world's first example of capsule architecture built for actual use.

You can not sleep over at Nakagin Capsule tower, but you can sleep at another apt which is just 2 min walk.
First, you will check in at the other apt.
And I will meet you to take you Nakagin room and give you tour and tell you the rule (for first time. And after that, you can visit Nakagin any time)

While we did not get to meet Masato while we were staying at Nakagin, his communication was thorough and clear. Nakagin is easy to find and Masato's written instructions very easy to follow. When I had a question during our stay his response was fast and very friendly. It was summer and the air conditioner was a welcome respite from the Tokyo heat. The location is easy walking distance to Ginza, and we had a great time in the local area, which we previously hadn't seen. The space was as described in the listing and it was lovely to spend a night in such a historic building.

I ended up staying at Masato's for my entire stay in Tokyo, it may not be the coolest area but it is very easy to get around as the train station (Shimbashi) is very close. I did not get to meet Masato but he left me a phone so I could contact him with any queries. He was very helpful and considerate. I recommend staying at Nakagin as you get your own room with a toilet and shower, there is also a convenience store downstairs where you can get food, beer and anything else you may need.

Though it's just a short visit, I'm really satisfied with the condition of the room. It's all original even includes furnitures and electronics. The host is also really nice and showed us around in the building afterwards.

Everything the host describe is accurate in the listing. When you enter the apartment, you will get a notebook with VERY DETAILED instructions on how to get comfortable. Pity that Masato was not free to show me around. Architects and historians should really stay in this building as its one of a kind
