This Family-Friendly Pokemon Room In Japan Is Where You Should Stay Next

Despite being a destination filled with delicious halal Japanese food and spectacular sightseeing spots, Tokyo and Kyoto are also known for their variety of unique accommodations. Whether you're travelling with your family or friends, we know a hotel that fits the bill - and it's none other than Apartment Hotel Mimaru! You may have already seen our 2D1N trip to Kyoto where we strolled in Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, indulged in grilled wagyu beef at Nanzan and stayed in the Muslim-friendly Apartment Hotel Mimaru. If you're looking for more reasons to stay here, let it be its newly-launched Pokémon-themed room!

Perfect for a group of four, this Western-style room has a sleeping, dining and kitchen area. The first thing you'll notice is this unique Pokéball motif wallpaper that decorates the dining and sleeping areas.

It's available in each room, so you can snuggle up after a day of savouring delicious halal Japanese food in Kyoto. The Pokémon room has two single beds and one bunk bed, where everyone can sleep comfortably.

Another added bonus to your stay is the free gifts that are exclusive to Pokémon room guests! You'll get an original-design drawstring bag and welcome card as well as a unique hand towel (MIMARU Tokyo and Kyoto hotels have separate designs!). What a treat for Pokémon lovers!
