I want to take a nap with "Kusuka" because it only takes 10 or 20 minutes between work! Then, your work performance and skin condition will improve at once!
There was a place to meet the wishes of such a woman! Its name is "Qusca".
Kuska, which opened in Akasaka in December 2012, is a women-only nap cafe. Due to its coziness and excellent service, it has become a popular spot for working women to rush to.
But is it relaxing to take a nap at a cafe? Moreover, the place is Akasaka, which is a city in the city. It's a noisy area, but ...
Well, I'm curious!
If you're curious, the En-eating editorial department is the place to go and check it out. I mean, I actually got sleepy, so I went there because of the interview! Are you sly because of your work?
■ I came to Akasaka
About 30 seconds on foot from Akasaka station. The head office of TBS and Kasumigaseki, where government offices are concentrated, are in the immediate vicinity, and we have come to a lively area where many restaurants are lined up. Kuska seems to be on the second floor of a building in this area ... It's strange that there is a healing spot in such a place, but I found it! The signboard of the cute sheep is a landmark!
■ Friendly staff welcomes you
Take the elevator to the 2nd floor of the building. Then you will find a nice space that is bright and open, with pale light blue walls and wooden furniture that makes you feel warm. The female staff who greeted me was friendly and very kind. This is the first time for me to use the "nap room", and I feel relaxed here. Your first challenge is something that puts a lot of effort into your shoulders.
■ Apply for the use of "Nap Room"
If you apply for a nap room called "Ohirune Room", you will be given a slip with the start time. You will be charged in 10 minute increments and will be paid after the nap. I asked for it here and borrowed an earphone-type alarm clock. Small and cute! With this, you don't have to worry about waking up other customers with the alarm sound. You can also ask the staff to wake you up, so it seems that you can prevent the situation of "I accidentally overslept!".
■ Full service, not just "sleeping place"
Despite being in a prime location in Akasaka, using the nap room costs 150 yen for 10 minutes, which means that even if you sleep for an hour, it costs only 900 yen. Don't be surprised, "Can it be so cheap?" In fact, this service also comes with free drinks and food! And there are many kinds! What a wonderful service spirit! Feeling completely uplifted, I head to the nap room with a glass of juice in my hand.
■ Finally, go to the nap room!
The nap room is next to the cafe and one door away. It is a calm space illuminated by warm orange light and scented with aroma. There are 2 beds and 4 sofas. There was a female customer, but each one has a curtain, so other people can sleep without worrying about it.
I lay down on the sofa and suddenly remembered. When I was a kid, I longed for a bed with a canopy. The image of a fairy tale princess is sleeping on a bed with such a curtain down, right? I never thought that my childhood dreams would come true in Akasaka today. Borrow a blanket, set an alarm, and good night!
■ The nap is over. Don't forget to fix your makeup
About 20 minutes later, I woke up to the sound of the alarm. Even when sleeping like a princess, working women must return to the "battlefield" when they wake up. I have to remake and re-enter the "combat posture". For you, Kusca has prepared a make-up set. From cosmetics to hair products, it's completely exhausted! The skin that has been replenished with sleep will surely improve the make-up, and it seems that you can refresh your mood and return to work.
■ The cafe lunch is also wonderful
After taking a nap and feeling refreshed, I decided to have lunch.
What I received was a "selectable deli plate". In addition to bread and salad, this menu allows you to choose your favorite side dish. This time, I chose "Pumpkin Salad" and "Burdock Salad". Marinated mushrooms are also available, making it a great choice for health-conscious women. Two types of bread that are warmed up with warmth, and a salad with a fresh and gentle seasoning are added, which is very satisfying for a 600 yen lunch. The deli menu changes from day to day, and you can order additional soup and quiche.
■ What kind of women are the users?
Kusuka is attracting attention from the mass media as a store with an unprecedented style. What kind of women are most of the customers?
According to the staff, when the store opened, it was often used as "a nap for 10 minutes after having lunch". However, as Kuska's service is widely known and resistance to naps outside has diminished, many customers have recently said that they "sleep well for a couple of hours." Certainly, in such a cozy space, I could sleep for several hours.
■ Very satisfied with the service and price!
This time I stayed in Kuska for about an hour from 11:30 am to 12:30 am. In the meantime, I took a 20-minute nap, had lunch, and enjoyed free drinks and sweets. The nap room usage fee was 300 yen and lunch was 600 yen, so the total amount was only 900 yen. It's amazing, Mr. Kuska, to sleep, eat, relax and spend such a meaningful hour for only 900 yen! Services such as Wi-Fi and mobile phone chargers are also in place, and customers have nothing more to hope for.
It seems that there are many sales staff among the customers of Kuska. A sales person who can't show his tired face to customers. Perhaps I'm taking a quick nap in Kusuka, regaining my spirit, and heading for the customer again, taking a break from the outside.
