Lately, there seem to be many train themed hotel rooms appearing in Japan. These will, of course, require advance reservations, if and when we get back traveling

 

Fraser Residence Nankai Osaka

 

Here, the wall above the bed is wallpapered with an image of the Nankai Railway rap:d airport train.  The room also has a train driving simulator and seats from Nankai's Southern Limited are placed in the living room.

Asakusa Tobu Railway Hotel 

 

Asakusa Tobu Railway Hotel is located in front of Asakusa Station, one of the starting points of the Tobu Line.  Here, there is a full scale driving simulator in the room based on the Tobu Railway 50070 type cab.

I'm more of the "seeing real trains from my hotel window" type, so rooms that offer these views are always of interest.  There seem to be lots of these rooms promoted throughout the nation, but lot of them offer only obstructed, partial and/or views from very far up.  Two that offer interest to me, i.e. close distance, with lots of variety and unobstructed views are these (one I have stayed in and the other one I hope to stay some day):

 

Tokorozawa Park Hotel (stayed here last spring):

 

Kintetsu Miyako City Kyoto:
