Japan Is Making Hotel Rooms That Are Drifting, Floating Orbs
Hope you don't get seasick
Japan’s latest? A floating capsule that will carry hotel guests to a deserted island as they sleep.
The brainchild of the creators of Huis Ten Bosch — a Dutch-themed amusement park on Nagasaki Prefecture that replicates the experience of traveling to Amsterdam — the spherical capsules feature two stories, one with a clear roof for stargazing and another located below.
What exactly guests will do upon reaching the 420,000 square-foot uninhabited island is unclear, but Huis Ten Bosch is building “adventure-type attractions,” the Japan Times reported.
Large enough to accommodate four guests, the floating rooms will cost $260 to $350 per night and they may begin service in Omura Bay by as soon as the end of the year.
Hopefully they float.
