Random: Get your first real look inside the former Nintendo HQ hotel

A week ago, “Marufukuro,” the former Nintendo headquarters converted into a hotel, opened to the public. The Kyoto-based building is a huge icon for Nintendo fans, many of whom pose outside in front of the old sign. This is where the company actually made playing cards and started researching toys and gadgets. So it’s a significant place in Nintendo’s history since it’s been there since 1889.

Now that the hotel is open, YouTuber Cathy Cat managed to get a tour of the beautiful looking building. The guide takes Cathy Cat around the reception and rooms.

The hotel consists of four buildings. The front building is the familiar part, while the second – formerly an office – has been completely remodeled. Next to it was the old residential building with a brand new fourth building designed and built by Tadao Ando, ​​a famous Japanese architect.

One of the nicest things about the hotel is how much of the old furniture they kept and incorporated into the design. Things like the office chairs and the clock that employees used to use to check in and out of work are still there – and the latter still works! There’s even a miniature LEGO replica of the hotel!

The lower right picture of the library is an absolute dream. Cathy Cat gets a glimpse of a Game Boy – which is fully functional – and you can also spy on other items like a Mario fan and a GameCube on the shelves. It’s not all Nintendo stuff, but everything in the hotel feels like a slice of history that respects Nintendo’s and Japan’s past.

Cathy Cat isn’t the only person to peek inside the iconic Marufukoro building. Masahiro Sakurai, Mr. smash bros himself, stayed on site and took some damn nice shots on top of that.

How many Nintendo Points do you think this planter will cost?

There is a nice shot of the library as well as the outside of the front building and plaque. That doesn’t help our envy at all; weather Yes, really want to leave, but we’d better save the pennies since rooms for two adults are about $700 each. But it looks like it’s worth the money.

What do you think of the new hotel? Planning a trip to Kyoto? Let us know in the comments.
