Nap room at Hibaru office, Nishitetsu bus
A convenient series of stylish and modern prefabricated panel style capsule beds. The beautifully colored anodized aluminum finish emphasizes the clean look, and invites users in to a fully appointed sleeping environment. Interior and exterior finishes can be chosen from 36 different patterns, to create a capsule bed which will fit well with the room.
The interior illumination comes in both an adjustable angle bedside light as well as indirect lightning from behind the headboard. Both use LEDs, and both offer variable brightness levels. The adjustable angle bedside light is perfect for activities such as reading, while the indirect lighting can illuminate the entire interior of the capsule.
Powersocket, USB ports, and accessory pocket
Guests can easily store watches and other accessories, and there even is a place for a smartphone while it charges. Because USB ports can be used regardless of type of outlet, they are very popular with people visiting Japan from other countries.
The night panel allows the guest to control the interior of the capsule bed. It has an integrated clock with an alarm. The lighting and fan can also be controlled from the panel.
Head board pad
The headboard is equipped with a pad, so even if a guest leans against it, there will be no strain on their back. The surface material is made of a durable and breathable mesh fabric, and it is perfect for leaning against while reading.
Number plate and Illumination button
The number plate affixed to the bed entrance makes it easy to find the right bed at a glance. Using the adjacent illumination button, the lighting can even be turned on and off from outside the bed.
The pulldown screen is made of 100% polyester, and it is flame resistant. In the unlikely event of a fire, it will prevent the fire from spreading.
Steps and Handrails
The steps for accessing an upper level bed have non slip surfaces, and they are carefully designed to prevent falling. To make entry as easy as possible, there are handrails attached to both the left and right sides.
Front entry (Layout : Tandem)
These units feature an entrance directly in line with the bed. They are extremely space efficient. Because the surface area of the bed entrance facing the walkway is as small as possible, they make it possible to fit a large number of capsule beds into a room with limited space.

Front wide entry (Layout : Tandem)

These units feature an entrance on the side of the bed. They are very easy to get in and out of. The wider entrance makes them easier to get in and out of than Front entry units, and it also helps to alleviate feelings of claustrophobia.
Side entry (Layout : Individual)
These capsule beds can be placed in the middle of a room facing left or right in a variety of positions. Depending on the arrangement, a space like that of a private room can be created.
