Many people like to get away for rest and relaxation.

But one Tokyo hotel is encouraging its female customers to get in touch with their emotional side by offering luxuriously stocked “crying rooms”—complete with soft tissues, girly tear-jerker rom-coms, eye masks, and more.

The Mitsui Garden Yotsuya hotel is touted for its “friendly staff” and “comfortable rooms” on TripAdvisor by both male and female reviewers. But women looking to really get it all out may need a little help to get through any emotional problems in their lives.

According to Singapore's O my news, women can choose from 12 movie titles like Hollywood blockbuster “Forrest Gump,” South Korea’s “A Moment to Remember”—a film about loss in the wake of those suffering from Alzheimer’s, and Japan's “A Tale Of Mari And Three Puppies”—which chronicles the aftermath of the 2004 Chūetsu earthquake--- and somehow involves three adorable Shiba Inu puppies.

Pass the Kleenex please.

For those who prefer to read and weep, there are themed comic books that are also geared towards women. Review site Excite says that the tissues are as soft as cashmere and special steam eye masks allow you to awake refreshed and renewed, not puffy and red.

Mitsui Garden Yotsuya hotel offers the “Ladies Moderate Single" room starting at 10,000 Yen --or just $83-- per night. A small price to pay for true emotional release.
