Alright.  You must be shaking your head at this point wondering what in the world a Yotel is.  Well, guess what?  I had NEVER heard of of a Yotel either!  I found out about it by watching an episode of Better Late than Ever with George Foreman, The Fonz, That Captain from Star Trek and a football player… what’s his name?   Oh, yeah… Terry Bradshaw.  They happened to be exploring unique places in Japan and it sparked my interest….
