Posted in: Tourism boom drives Japan to convert offices into hotels See in context

This is just a glorified capsule hotel. I'd hate to see what the "rooms" are like in the bunkbed hotel.

Wow! The testosterone is running so strong in these comments, I can almost smell it. I have long walks (15-20 minutes) several times a day from the station to different offices that I visit. My manbrella is a godsend in the hot sun, just as my umbrella is an absolute necessity in the rain. For those of you so lacking in masculine self-confidence that you're afraid to be seen with what used to be a mark of royalty, I say grow a pair and grow up.

I took my manbrella for two 1 km walks in the direct sunshine today. At the end of each I felt cool, calm and collected. I'm a true convert and believer now!

Why don't they just wear the wide brim straw hats seen in old Japanese prints ?

I've got one of those. I love it, but they're heck on trains.

Hallelujah! I've always envied the women here their personal, portable shade but I've been too sissy to use one myself. Now I can proudly carry my own parasol/umbrella/sunshade/whatever. Aaaaah. I feel cooler already!
