Osaka’s First Ever eSports Hotel is Set to Open by 2020

The Land of the Rising Sun is known for its unique forms of accommodation for foreign tourists and sojourners such as but not limited to compact capsule motels, bed and book inns and other themed hotels. There is a wide selection of options to choose from. Tourists may also opt for the traditional inns or hotels with a modern ambience.


Since Japan is also known as a modern hub for electronic sports and video gaming, a modern esports hotel is set to open in the downtown Nippon bashi district of Osaka. It is a perfect choice of accommodation for travellers who are into video games and animation. The hotel will be called e-ZONe Denno Kukan since it is inspired by the Japanese concept of cyberspace.


e-ZONe Denno Kukan will be constructed in Osaka which is home to the country’s most established fighting game developers, Capcom and SNK. The hotel building has a total of eight stories, but only the fourth to eighth floors with ninety four beds are available for hotel guests.


The first, second and third floors of the hotel are intended as gaming areas complete with more than seventy fast speed and visually advanced computers, live streaming equipments and other gaming gears.


The proprietors of the hotel seek to establish a perfect accommodation for travellers who are enthusiastic about games and electronic sports. It is an avenue for them to gather with their online friends to play some games. The hotel also caters to international travellers who are set to compete in electronic sports tournaments to be held in Japan.


Since the hotel’s target market are usually the young generation of gamers and sports enthusiasts, the rates and price range for the accommodation is expected to be affordable and practical. The hotel will start accepting guests by April 2020.
