Ladies, need a good ol' crying jag? Then you may want to consider hopping on a plane to Japan.

Here's why it's not so out of place to consider the 18-hour trip to the Pacific - the Mitsui Garden Yotsuya hotel in Tokyo is offering women special "crying rooms" to help them combat stress.

According to Mashable, the rooms, which can be booked for 10,000 Japanese yen per day, through August 31, contain tissues, warm sheets and eye masks.

Women can also watch tearjerker films, such as Forrest Gump, or read super-sad manga.

Weird? Not so much for a country that also offers services such as "love hotels" which are hotel rooms designed for short stays when you are feeling 'amorous' and cuddle cafes, where men pay to sleep next to a woman.

So the big question is, would you consider going to Japan for a shot at the "crying room" and more importantly, would you pay N16,000 for a serious crying session?
