Japanese hotel offers ‘crying rooms’ for women
In a bizarre offer, a hotel in Tokyo has launched special “crying rooms” for women that are equipped with a selection of tear-jerking movies, eye masks and luxury tissues to allow female guests to cry heartily.
The Mitsui Garden Yotsuya hotel said it is providing the rooms to help women de-stress and overcome emotional problems, and that it hopes the rooms would allow women to cry ‘heartily’ and in private.
At USD 83 a night, the rooms are equipped with a selection of tear-jerking aides, ‘metro.co.uk’ reported.
These include movies such as Forest Gump and A Tale Of Mari And Three Puppies (a 2007 Japanese film about the true
story of a dog and her puppies who survived the 2004 Chuetsu earthquake).
The rooms also have sad manga comics for those who would prefer to read and shed tears.
The rooms also contain tissues which are described as ‘soft as cashmere’, eye masks and makeup remover to help female guests cry in comfort.
