“Wellbe Nagoya” is a very popular capsule hotel chain in Nagoya. This time, I visited their Imaike location.
One night’s stay, which includes a breakfast buffet, starts at 4220 yen. It may be a capsule hotel, but guests can also enjoy an outdoor bath and sauna as well. Another point of appeal is the unlimited access net booths, where you can watch all the movies you want.

※This facility is exclusive for men.Japanese name:ウェルビー名古屋 今池店。

The outside looks a bit old-fashioned.

The outside looked old and small, but it’s surprisingly spacious inside!
This time I chose the capsule lodging plan, but you can pay to just use the sauna as well.

Starting at 15:00 every day, they also offer “sauna yoga” (approx. 8 minutes) taught by a female instructor, as well as a popular entertainment sauna combining stretching and the Finnish “löyly.”

Towels, razors, toothbrushes, and other necessities are available to use for free.

A downside to my stay was that there is no elevator in the building, but other than that, I was satisfied with my visit!
