Nap Cafes Exist Now, So Put On Some PJs And Doze Off In A $9,000 Bed


Welcome to another edition of, “Why on Earth hasn't this been invented sooner?”

Today, we're going to be talking about nap cafes.

You read that right. It's a cafe where you can relax on a luxury bed and get some seriously high-grade sleep before continuing with your day.

Yes, nap cafes are a thing now, and to be honest, I'm not sure how we managed to live our lives before they existed.

Sadly, you'll have to go all the way to Japan to indulge in the world's coziest cafe, but this idea needs to come to America, STAT.

Here's how it works.

You're given a bed — that might be valued at as much as $9,000 — a light that's set on “relax” mode, some headphones, a cup of decaf coffee and two hours to have the best damn nap of your life.

How perfect does that sound?

At the end, you're gently woken up and handed a cup of regular coffee, so you can get up and get on with your day, the PR Times reported.

You can find it in Tokyo's Harajuku district at the Nescafe Harajuku cafe, which has been fitted with 10 electric beds with built-in recliners.

And then of course, there's the big daddy, the Bosutesso BO-08, which costs 980,000 yen ($8,694). That sounds like THE best place to nap.

If you want to lose yourself in a world of bliss, all you need to do is buy an item from the cafe's food menu.

But there's a cruel, cruel downside — the nap cafe is only temporary, and will close its doors later this week, on March 26.

It's only here temporarily to celebrate World Sleep Day, but still, I'm hopeful this is the start of something really special.

Just imagine a world where you can use a nap cafe, whether you're recovering from the night before, or you've had a long day at work or you just want to treat yourself.

That is a world I want to live in.
