Japanese hotels launch ‘crying rooms’
The Japanese, often stereotyped as emotionless, have found ways to cater to a growing demand for emotional release. In response to the stresses of everyday life particularly among women, the Mitsui Garden Yotsuya Hotel in Shinjuku, Tokyo has designated a specific room where women can go to have a massive weep in.
It has cashmere-soft tissues, weepy films like Forrest Gump, sad books and warm blankets.
A spokesperson for the hotel said its aim is to help Japanese women lower their stress levels.
