I went to Tokyo last week and ate this
When I go to Tokyo I like to stay at the First Cabin Hotel at either Haneda or Narita airports.
I have written about these places before but they are a source such joy to me that I can not restrain myself.:
Things I like:
It reminds me of skool
I can pretend I am in a hut on the Antartic shelf
It has lightning internet
It is 2 mins from the departure security gate
It is 1 minute from any number of restaurants
I do not have to get up at 3:30 in the center of Tokyo and worry about getting the right subway
It is dirt cheap
I also delight in the fact that there are no doors on the rooms, just a sliding screen thing, which you cannot lock. It is understood that we live in a civilized society where people are not going to rob, murder and stuff, you.
Come morning, I stumble into the spotless bathroom area for a shower and that sort of thing. Everyone is wearing the blue hotel pyjamas. It is like a scene from a prison movie or a British public school. We all hunch over the sinks with bleary eyes, tousled hair, I mean not me, as we ritually scrub our molars.
15 minutes later we are all bursting out to catch flights. Everyone is immaculate in suits and ties, I mean not me.
