El concepto “vivir en una cápsula” siempre ha tenido algo gibsonianamente guay, aunque este artículo hace un buen trabajo echando por tierra el mito. Ubicuo olor a tabaco, los ronquidos y codazos al cambiar de postura de tus vecinos perfectamente audibles en mitad de la noche, tu intimidad protegida por una lámina de plástico y un montón de historias tristes de ciudadanos a un paso de vivir en la calle.

Read About Capsule Living and Feel Better About Your Dinky Apartment
As Japan’s jobless rate creeps higher—it is currently 5.2%, the highest it has ever been—some Tokyo residents are saving money by moving into hotels. Caspule hotels.
At about $620 a month, rent’s not that cheap, though that does afford you a small in-capsule TV and fresh linens, as well as access to communal areas. The capsules have screens instead of doors, and their thin walls provide little privacy. There is, of course, little space for personal possessions, so most residents keep their things stowed in even smaller lockers on the premises.
The hotel’s proprietor estimates about a third of the establishment’s 300 capsules are rented long term, on a month by month basis. It is heartening, though, to read that the capsule-dwelling individuals interviewed in this article remain optimistic about what the future holds.
