Tokyo Street Fashion and Capsule Hotels

Not that these two topics have anything to do with each other, but I saw two unrelated articles in today's New York Times about Japan.

The first is a quick look into the international influence of Tokyo fashion. Check out, "Paris, Milan, Tokyo. Tokyo?"

The second is a more unsettling piece about salarymen who because of the weak economy have recently been turning to capsule hotels for residency. Check out, "For Some in Japan, Home Is a Tiny Plastic Bunk."
