Celebrating New Year in Japan: I Have a Baby and Staying at a Capsule Hotel in Tokyo

Yes, I have a baby

He has appropriately been named Grudrun. Even though it's an unfashionable Norwegian female name. Oh, well.

Do you remember the cat I wrote about on Christmas eve? Well, it doesn't come as a shock that we haven't heard anything from Supermario sensee, so Cat and a bunch of other people took the cat to the vet and got it checked out. As we thought it's leg is broken, so now they are trying to raise the money for the operation and trying to find someone who'll adopt him.


On New Year's Eve my bus from Oita arrived in Tokyo at 9 in the morning. Then I rushed home to change and pack out before heading back to Tokyo with Cat and Julie to celebrate New Year.

We stayed at a capsule hotel in Kinshichoo. It was so cool! And pretty cheap; 3100 yen (ca. 190 NOK) per night.


There's even a TV!


We went to a club in Shibuya. It was WAY too crowded and the air was thick with cigarette smoke. I'm 21 years old, but I feel like a granny. I just wanted to go back to our cosy and warm capsule.

And when we finally did, at 4 in the morning, I slept like a baby.
