1Kara single-person karaoke booths beat the purpose of karaoke!
Tired of practicing your vocal capabilities in the shower? Well, a certain Japanese firm has come up with the perfect way to help you croon away to glory without embarrassing yourself in public. Called the 1Kara, these single-person karaoke booths in Tokyo come with a chair, a microphone, headphones, and a small screen upon which the lyrics are displayed in a sound-proofed area, so that your voice, irrespective of how good you think it is, doesn’t carry out. Also, the company has beverages that usually make you strip yourself of all your social inhibitions on offer. For 600 yen per hour between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm and 1200 yen from 6:00 pm to 6:00 am, you can now have a private space, away from your unappreciative family members to practice your Christmas Carols!
