Japanese hotel offers “crying rooms”

Hot on the heels of cat cafes and bunny cafes, Japan has added a new novelty to its leisure industry: crying rooms.

The rooms, launched by the Mitsui Garden Yotsuya hotel in Shinjuku, Tokyo, are designed to help women combat stress. The rooms come complete with soft issues, warm eye masks and a selection of terk-jerking movies and manga.

Films on offer include Forrest Gump, A Moment to Remember, and A Tale Of Mari And Three Puppies, which follows a group of real life dogs that survived the 2004 Chuetsu earthquake.

Rooms cost around £55 per day.
