Have you been bottling up all of your feels? Do you feel like a ticking time bomb, apt to explode into tears at any moment?
Rather than let anyone you know actually witness you emote (the horror!), you can now cry in luxurious solace, thanks to the Mitsui Garden Yotsuya hotel in Tokyo.
The hotel has sectioned off part of its hotel as designated “crying rooms,” available only to female clientele for a mere $83 per night. A press release from Mitsui Garden Hotels explains that they hope they allow women to destress and overcome emotional problems by crying “heartily” in private.
But the hotel’s compassion doesn’t end there. If you find yourself with inexplicably dry eyes upon check-in, the rooms come supplied with a number of tear-jerking aides, including films such as “Forrest 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 Chuetsu earthquake, which as far as we can tell is the Japanese equivalent of 1993’s “Homeward Bound.” (And if that movie doesn’t make you cry, then you’re a heartless monster.)
Sad manga comics are also available.
Comfort during your cry-fest is of utmost importance to Mitsui Garden Hotels, which also equips its rooms with warm sheets, eye masks, tissues and, the best toiletry of all, makeup remover — no tell-tale mascara smudges upon checkout!
Other amenities not essential to sobbing include hairbrushes, hair elastics, razors and shaving cream, shampoo and conditioner, soap, green tea, slippers and pajamas.
Of course, if you’re especially frugal, you can just go cry it out on the subway. No one will try to comfort you there, either.
