Are you one of those who are struggling to take with you all the 30 bags of model railroad equipment when going on holiday – then the solution is finally here! In Japan, some hotels figured out that they will offer special hotel rooms for their guests who are model railway enthusiasts. Washington Hotel in Akihabara, Tokyo, was the first, and can offer a room with a nearly 6 square meters large model railway. The track is made as an urban Japanese city environment in n-scale and offers space for two train drivers.

The hotel room has a double bed, costing about 280 US$ a day, and you have a view to the Shinkansen (the legendary Japanese speed train). It has pictures of trains on the walls, as well as a good selection of railway-related DVDs. There is, moreover, not only in Tokyo you can find hotel rooms with model railways. Hotel Metropolitan Nagano offers a suite with a 12 square meter large railroad. Here you can find speed trains, natural scenery, and two cities. 1065 US$ you must pay for a night, or 42 $ for an hour.

Sorry for the bad picture quality, but it’s the only photos I manage to find online.
