Anime-Themed Hotel in China
A Japanese TV news program reports on a new hotel that has opened in Chinese province of Anhui. It’s trying to appeal to young people who like Japanese culture:
Many of the rooms have anime characters painted on their walls. There is also a Hayao Miyazaki-themed room, with artwork that sort of resembles characters from Howl’s Moving Castle. The narrator comments on how the hotel doesn’t seem worried about getting permission from copyright holders.
There is also a room that appears to be based on a Chinese person’s image of traditional Japanese inns. There is a big painting of Mount Fuji, tatami floors, and futons. The futons don’t really seem like ryokan futons and there is a weird tatami table that can come out of the floor. The reporter compares it to a single man’s apartment.
