Massage Chairs in Japan

Last Monday, Hubby and I went to an outlet Mall. There were tons of stores to look at. There was also a huge D.I.Y. store and a humongous Electronics store. The only thing I bought was a 300 yen hat at the D.I.Y. store. By the time we got to the electronics store, we had been on our feet for 3 hours. I was exhausted and wondering how I was going to entertain myself while Hubby looked at gadgets.

Then I spotted the massage chairs! No need to be bashful when it comes to sleeping in a massage chair in an electronics store. I see it all the time here in Japan. There were about eight massage chairs on display. Five were already occupied with people travelling through dreamland. I gladly took my shoes off and laid down in an available one. I messaged Hubby to come get me when he was ready which ended up being 40 minutes later. I felt refreshed and ready for anything. Aaahhh! If only I had 300,000 yen to buy one for myself.

*** 300 yen = 3.25 USD, 4.15 AUD, 2.32 Euro
3 million yen = 3241 USD, 4147 AUD, 2326 Euro

This gentleman was in front of me. Subtle shadows for the dream fairy.

Now that is funny...do you go there often...Ha!

Hey Harriet said...

I'd love one of those chairs! I'm wondering if you have to pay to use them? I've seen them here in shopping centres and they are coin operated ones. I must try one when I have some extra coins in my pocket! Thanks for the currency conversion :)

sweet repose, that was my first time. I might have to try it again.

HeyHarriet, these are models to try out in case you want to buy one, so they are free to use.

That chair looks very relaxing...When we were passing through the airport in Copenhagen, we saw some massage chairs that did not look as comfy as this--they looked like electric chairs--LOL! Fun post, Juana...I feel sleepy just looking...Happy Day :o)

Chris Stone said...

Even though you were not able to buy yourself one of them massage chairs, you were able to enjoy it free for 40 minutes! But it would be really fine to have one fo them at home.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
