On November 19 the Ohirune Café Corne, a nap café designed for women, was opened in Tokyo. The café, opened in the center of the capital, was created to give sleep-deprived women editors and workers a chance to rejuvenate, according to Nemulog, the café’s operating company.

The café is operating in Tokyo’s Jinbocho district, home to many publishing companies, and is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., the local press reports.

The café’s interior design features white lace curtains hanging from the ceiling and a refreshing scent and was created following the suggestions from the company’s 34,000 online members.

“I often hear what working women need most is sleep,” said Sakiko Tsukashima, who operates the salon. “I hope they will use our salon to refresh themselves.” The “nap salon” will offer 10-minute nap in a dimly lit room with eight beds at the cost of Y150 ($1.50).

Tired clients can choose from 14 kinds of pillows, which vary in height and firmness, and can enjoy the food and drink offered by the salon. They can also use slumber wear, electric blankets, a new alarm clock that resembles earphones and other items offered by 20 companies that are involved in the “sleep business” together with Nemulog.
