Another case of Japan finding a niche clientele, this time in specialized hotel accommodation:

A Hotel Room Where Train Nerds Can Get Action. Train Action.

In most Japanese hotel rooms, you just sleep. In some, you might do other things. But in this Tokyo hotel you can play with toy trains.

At the Washington Hotel in Tokyo’s geek district of Akihabara, room 1304 is quite different from the rest. It’s outfitted with a diorama that has Tokyo Tower, Tokyo Skytree, and thirty meters of model train track!
