Sleep can be hard to come by. As Japanese companies look for new ways to improve productivity, and groggy workers aim for a better quality of life, they have hit upon a common-sense solution: midday catnaps.

For people who cannot fall asleep just by closing their eyes, Body Work, a Tokyo company that runs the Raffine chain of massage rooms, has begun a service where customers can lie down and go to sleep while receiving massage on a sleep-enhancing, breathable mattress.

The Summer Deep Sleep Plan, offered in a tie-up with Tokyo bedding maker Airweave, is priced at ¥2,160 for 20 minutes.
