Karaoke is a type of entertainment originated in Japan, in which an amateur singer sings along with recorded music synchronized with lyrics displayed on-screen. You can rent a room and have a private party with your friends. Many Japanese use it alone as well, as a way to release stress.
Except for singing, you can eat, drink or even sleep there.
You can keep ordering throughout the night and if you choose a night pack, you can stay until the morning. It is a more affordable option to a hotel though it can be a bit loud if there is a big group in the adjacent room.
