What happens when you miss the last train?


You can pay a small fortune to hire a taxi to drive you home, you can start walking and hope to make it before sunrise, or you can find a place to hunker down for the night. If you choose the last option, your overnight can be spent in a capsule hotel, a karaoke room, or internet cafe. Can you guess which I chose?

Surprising enough, spending a night in an internet cafe wasn’t bad at all. For about ¥2000 I got a tiny space (covered in super comfy vinal mats, pull out shelf/table thing and a sliding door), unlimited internet, an open drink bar, free run of the bathrooms. No one bothered me, save for a pair of neighbors locking lips at six in the morning.
