Next April, an esports-themed hotel will open in Osaka’s geek district Nipponbashi. Called Esports Hotel E-Zone Cyberspace in English, it is the first of its kind in Japan.
According to Japanese news outlet Fashion Snap, the main attraction for E-Zone will be located on the hotel’s first three floors. This section of the facility will house more than 70 high-end, streaming-ready gaming rigs. Presumably, the hotel planners intend to host tournaments and events. The fourth to eighth floors will be sleeping cabins.
The hotel is aimed at those who are new to esports as well as at old hands. The Esports Hotel E-Zone Cyberspace is planned for an April 2020 opening. Anticipated room rates are not yet available.
