This Hotel’s ‘Crying Rooms’ Are Perfect for When You Need a Good Sob
A Japanese hotel is making headlines for offering “crying rooms” where women can “de-stress” by bawling their eyes out, a spokesperson tells TIME.
 
For 10,000 Japanese Yen (or about $85 U.S. dollars) per person, these special rooms at the Mitsui Garden Hotel Yotsuya in Tokyo are stocked with tissues, “warm eye masks” and about a dozen sentimental movies, six of which are available in English and includeForrest Gump, The Intouchables, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, The Notebook, One Day and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape.
 
A spokesperson tells TIME that the hotel started the promotion “because Japanese ladies in their 20s-40s are often said to live a life of stress.”
