Urban overnight lodging specializing in stays for business and other active purposes, based on the concept of one hour of showering, seven hours of sleep and one hour of getting dressed, adding up to nine hours. This focusing of the functions of lodging as just sleeping and showering is a radical approach. Customers sleep in the "Sleeping Pod," 9h’s original fiber-reinforced plastic unit, while all places outside the unit are public space shared with all other customers. Units use the "Shinshitsu Kankyo (Bedroom Environment) System," in which customers fall asleep and wake up according to the light, with the aim of providing a good night’s sleep for the sleeping time available. The functions and facilities are appropriate for a nine-hour stay, but customers can stay up to 17 hours for the same price.
