Where to Check In After You've Checked Out

The rising death rate in Japan has lengthened the average wait for cremation to roughly four days. That's a long 96 hours to let you lay there and ripen. So what do you do after shuffling off this mortal coil? You get yourself to a corpse hotel, obviously.

The Lastel Hotel can host up to 18 recently-deceased guests at a time in refrigerated caskets. The nightly rate runs about £100. This is no gussied-up city morgue, mind you. The Lastel offers hearse and funeral services, viewing rooms for family, as well as sells a variety of caskets and urns. It's all very convenient, were you alive to notice. [Business Insider]
