Free In-Room Wifi? Forget That! I Want To Stay At This Hotel With A Free In-Room Model Railroad

Hotel Room with Model Railroad (Images courtesy Japan Trends)
By Andrew Liszewski

Since ‘densha otaku’ or ‘train spotters’ are very popular in Japan, the Washington Hotel located in Akihabara, Tokyo has a special room featuring a 2×3 meter L-shaped model railroad diorama complete with replicas of the local surroundings. It’s fully working too, with two separate controllers for you and another guest and if you don’t want to rent the trains from the hotel (that’s how they ‘get’ you on the final bill) you’re apparently welcome to bring your own. Definitely the first thing I always throw in my suitcase. The room runs about $265 a night, but you’ll have to book at least a month in advance since it’s apparently very, very popular.
