Japan doesn’t disappoint when it comes to Pokémon.

Pocket Monster fans can now stay overnight in a Pokémon-themed hotel room in Mimaru Hotels.

Perfect for large groups or families, the rooms can accommodate up to six people and feature images of first-generation Pokémon on the walls, including Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Dragonite. There are also Pokéballs printed on the dining table and linens, and each bedroom comes equipped with a giant Snorlax plush that can double as a cuddly companion.
The kitchenette area is equipped with Pokéball tableware and you will receive a special gift upon check-in. For stays through June 30, the gift includes a Pokéball drawstring bag, a Pikachu welcome card, and two hand towels with exclusive Pokémon designs.
For stays from July 1, the gift will turn into an eco-friendly bag, luggage tag and welcome cards. Designs vary depending on the hotel.
While only one Pokémon gift set is awarded per room, it is available for sale at 1,650 should you wish to collect additional keepsakes from your stay.
