Dubbed a "relation room for men and women," this cozy room is a forever alone pod that lets you get away and relax, work or study, watch movies and play video games, and enjoy your figurine collection.

Nothing wrong with that at all. Because, really, why face the world? No, seriously. Why?

There are multiple drawers, a collection rack, LED lights, and extra storage space. It's all built-to-order. And how much does this cozy space cost? 798,000 yen or nearly US$8,000. Apparently you can put a price on alone time like this.

So people buy these to be alone while they're at home?

I think it would be a good idea to set these up in office buildings, or in libraries. They seem quite practical in busier locations. Though I don't understand why you'd buy one of these for personal use at home.
