Enjoy a night at sea in free-floating capsule hotel
The Jakarta Post
Ever fancied the idea of an underwater capsule restaurant? Consider raising the stakes by visiting Japan and staying in a capsule that floats freely on the sea.
Huis Ten Bosch, a Japanese Dutch-themed park, plans to build two-story capsules that can accommodate up to four guests. The capsules will be left to float overnight to a 39,000-square-meter island owned by the park that is home to attractions the guests can explore once they arrive on the island.
A night in the capsule could cost anywhere between US$260 and $350, according to The Japan Times.
Not all are in love with the idea, though. “I am afraid that it [will float] off to the Pacific Ocean," said a commenter on Naver's Matome News.
“Imagine waking up in the morning and finding yourself in North Korea,” said another. (sul/kes)
