Staff Report

Grand Pacific Le Daiba, a hotel in Minato Ward, Tokyo, will be offering three guest rooms starting Friday with interior decorations featuring characters from the popular “Mobile Suit Gundam” animated series.

Gundam Front Tokyo, which features a huge, life-size Gundam statue and a museum, opened April 19 in the neighborhood and has turned out to be a popular attraction. The hotel’s campaign is part of an effort in the area to take advantage of Gundam’s popularity.

The theme rooms, dubbed “Project Room G,” have illustrations of characters on the walls and other Gundam-related ornaments. The prices start at ¥27,000 a night.
