From airport pods to outdoor platforms to pay-as-you-go sex bunkers, there is certainly not a  shortage of interesting hotel rooms to spend the night in while in the land of the rising sun.

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.
