Forget a room with a view, because a Tokyo hotel is offering female visitors a room with a catharsis.
Fox News reports Mitsui Garden Yotsuya hotel has a crying room for female patrons who wish to put on a sad flick and let the water works do their thing.
The only drawback we can see is the lack of similar accommodations for men, because sometimes we need to watch Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan for a couple of hours until we remember how to feel.
The report points to an article from News.omy.sg that explains the peculiar room you can stay at in Tokyo.
The report states, “These rooms, which are reserved for ‘crying,’ contain a selection of films specially chosen to tug at the heartstrings, the Japanese media quoted a spokesman for the Mitsui Garden Yotsuya Hotel in Tokyo as saying.”
After seeing some of the images of the hotel, we may just bottle up the sadness for a bit until we can make it out to Tokyo:
The hotel’s website offers more details including pricing for its accommodations. There is even free Wi-Fi and a video on demand system.
And, according to the reports, a specialized service that will let some of its guests openly weep in the comfort of their own Tokyo oasis.
O My has a bit more on what this entails: “The 12 videos she can choose from are famous sob titles including Hollywood's 'Forrest Gump,' South Korea's 'A Moment To Remember' and Japan's 'A Tale Of Mari And Three Puppies.' For those who prefer comics, there are four famous tear-jerkers at hand: 'Hourglass,' 'Angel I'm Not,' 'Flat,' and 'My Girl.'”
We couldn’t track down what other titles they might include, but we might suggest “Armageddon,” “Marley & Me,” and “Steel Magnolias” for fare that will have you rolled up in a ball of emotions by movie’s end.
According to the report a stay will run about 10,000 yen, or about $83. Then again, you could always fire up the Netflix, turn the phone off, pop the bottle of wine, and ready the tissues.
