New Japanese cafe offers nap time on luxurious beds

In Japan, cafes come in all shapes and sizes, with varying themes to attract customers. A new place is offering one of the most outrageous services to date—giving customers a spot to take a nap after a hot cup of coffee.
The cafe is a collaboration between Nescafe and France Bed for World Sleep Day, held annually on a Friday before the March Equinox, reports RocketNews24.
This limited-time cafe is now open at Nescafe Harajuku. The cafe itself has been transformed into a dimly-lit space for the event. Ten electronic reclining beds from France Bed have been put in place for customers to try out.
These beds are far from your average sleeping mattresses, with one being priced at 980,000 yen (roughly P400,000). Each bed will also come with a Philips “Hue” light and a Sony Hi-Res walkman/headphone set, to better help customers drift off into dream land.
Those who want to participate need to make at least one food purchase at the cafe. Staff will then serve up a free cup of Nescafe decaffeinated coffee. Upon waking, customers will get a free cup of regular coffee to shake off any remaining drowsiness, before they head back out into the streets.
The Nescafe x France Bed Sleep Cafe will only be around until March 26, so be sure to check it out if you happen to be in Japan around this time. Alfred Bayle/JB
