TOKYO —
Sometimes, after a long, stressful day, there’s nothing more comforting than crawling into bed with your significant other and falling asleep in their arms.
But what if you don’t have anyone to cuddle with in the first place? If you’re in Japan, you might think to go to a soapland or some other kind of brothel, but then you’d have to deal with all that sex when you really just want to close your eyes and rest in the warmth of another’s body.

But wait! Before you resign yourself to another lonely night of shedding tears on your Rei Ayanami dakimakura, why not stop by Soineya, Japan’s first “co-sleeping specialty shop,” where customers can pay to sleep in the arms of a beautiful girl—with no strings attached.

Soineya (literally, “sleep together shop”) opened its doors on Sept 25 in none other than Akihabara, Tokyo’s electronics district, hub of otaku culture and birthplace of other eccentric establishments like maid cafés. Soineya defines itself as a “co-sleeping specialty shop,” which we’re going to denominate “cuddle cafe” because it has a better ring to it.
According to the homepage, Soineya hopes to offer patrons “the simple and ultimate comfort of sleeping together with someone.”
Of course, ultimate comfort comes at a price. Let’s take a look at the Soineya “service menu”:
Admission fee: 3,000 yen

Standard Course

20 min – 3,000 yen
40 min – 5,000 yen (only 3,000 yen for first time visitors)
60 min – 6,000 yen
2 hrs – 11,000 yen
3 hrs – 16,000 yen
4 hrs – 20,000 yen
5 hrs – 25,000 yen
6 hrs – 30,000 yen
10 hrs – 50,000 yen
“Shimei-ryo“ (fee to pick the girl you want to sleep with) – 1,000 yen + 500 yen per hour

Optional Course

Customer sleeps in girl’s arm (3 min) – 1,000 yen
Girl pats customer on the back (3 min) – 1,000 yen
Customer pets girl on the head (3 min) – 1,000 yen
Customer and girl stare at each other (1 min) – 1,000 yen
Girl changes clothes (1 time) – 1,000 yen
Girl gives customer foot massage (3 min) – 1,000 yen
Customer gives girl foot massage (3 min) – 2,000 yen
Customer sleeps with head on girl’s lap (3 min) – 1,000 yen
Girl sleeps with head on customer’s lap (3 min) – 2,000 yen

So basically, you’re paying about 6,000 yen an hour to lie in bed with a complete stranger. The website doesn’t specify what customers are and are not permitted to do during the standard course, but it’s probably safe to assume your options are limited to “close your eyes and be quiet.”
Furthermore, Soineya is currently recruiting girls for part-time in-store and “delivery” work. Here’s the job description.

■ Job: Sleeping
■ Location: Akihabara (3 min walk from station)
■ Qualifications: High school age to 30s
■ Compensation: 3,500 yen/hour
■ Hours: Weekdays 15:00-22:00, Weekend/holidays 12:00-22:00

To be honest it would probably be cheaper than having a girlfriend anyways!

Exactly my thoughts... plus you really can cuddle, I like to do that a lot but past experiences tell me that girls don't like to be "loved" everytime I want to love them.

More weirdness, that 'menu' sounds like a perv's gourmet ... and no, I reckon a wife is still cheaper.

Maybe they should put on some extras like using water cannons against customers instead of the 'Taiwanese flotilla' in another threat I was reading ...

20,000 yen for 2 hours of water cannon .. I can see a lot of guys up for something like that !

Too expensive. For 20,000 yen you can fiddle with, and be fiddled with by, a naked girl for an hour.

Save your money go to Thailand and get a soapy for a hell of a lot less. Sleep with the girl for 20.00. I did that at a massage only place. The girl was surprised I just wanted to sleep. I didn't want the massage just sleep. She was my girlfriend the rest of the time I was there.

Japan's culture is a lot different than western. But I don't see spending all that money just to sleep. But most likely real Japanese won't be sleeping with foreigners.

Just this week we've heard the news from Japan about a female masturbation bar opening there and now this!

Japan, you never fail to amuse!
