Capsule hotels may stack up in Hong Kong

Jan 26, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: MSNBC

Hoping to capitalize on what seems like an ideal conundrum - a dense metropolis where both occupancy rates and per-night prices are high and centrally located land to develop new hotels is scarce - Galaxy Stars Limited, a local company, has started offering pod-beds for sale.

I like the idea of building capsule hotels for budget travellers. Maybe some posters would like to make a joint venture with me, building capsule hotels in NYC, Paris, London and becoming millionaires.

TOKYO —

The government on Wednesday said it will submit a request to UNESCO by Feb 1 to register Mt Fuji and the city of Kamakura as World Heritage sites in 2013.

The education ministry said that Mt Fuji has religious significance and artistic value because of its numerous depictions in ukiyoe woodblock prints, Fuji TV reported.

The ministry nominated Kamakura for its historical importance as the seat of Japan’s first shogunate administration of samurai.

Japan already has 16 sites registered as World Heritage cultural sites, including the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, Himeji Castle, shrines in Kyoto, Nara and Nikko, as well as the Ogasawara Islands
