Nescafe's Harajuku outlet has been transformed into a 'nap café', with the venue offering coffees alongside 10 comfy, reclining beds. Guests can take a nap for up to two hours, with relaxing music played through headphones and special lighting in the background.

Before customers go to sleep, they are treated to a free cup of Nescafe decaffeinated cofee and upon waking, are given a cup of regular coffee.

The café will be open until 26 March, with World Sleep Day falling on the Friday before the March equinox.

More: Last year, US mattress start-up Casper opened a sleep-themed pop-up in London's Covent Garden, aimed at helping individuals to re-energise and recharge. Mattress brand Eve also hosted 'power nap pods' at its Nap Station at The Truman Brewery last July.
