Guests at a Villa Fontaine-brand hotel at Tokyo's Haneda Airport can now stay in special themed rooms showcasing Japanese and popular culture including collaborations with Hatsune Miku and Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club.

Some 100 specially decorated guestrooms at the Hotel Villa Fontaine Premier/Grand Haneda Airport, operated by Sumitomo Fudosan Villa Fontaine Co., Ltd., feature collaborations with a number of iconic brands and characters offering travelers a taste of Japanese culture almost as soon as they step off the plane with the hotel directly connected to Haneda Airport's Terminal 3 (international terminal).

Among the rooms fans of Japanese popular culture can enjoy those featuring virtual singer and idol Hatsune Miku, one of the Piapro characters created by music technology company Crypton Future Media, INC.  All six of the Piapro characters - including Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len, Megurine Luka, MEIKO and KAITO - feature in the collaboration, a first for a hotel.

Other pop-culture themed rooms now available to book at the hotel include those with interior designs featuring Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club, a spin-off from the Japanese multimedia project Love Live! Staying at the hotel, fans of the idol club will have easy access to Tokyo's Odaiba district, the setting for Nijigasaki High School, via a free shuttle bus between Haneda Airport Garden and Ariake Garden, close to Odaiba.

The hotel also offers rooms in collaboration with LINE FRIENDS. Sticker characters from the mobile messenger app LINE have been combined with the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi and the theme of a traditional Japanese festival, or "omatsuri," to offer rooms with designs which can only be found at Hotel Villa Fontaine Premier/Grand Haneda Airport.

For something perhaps a little more niche, in the Sirotan-themed rooms hotel guests can enjoy their stay in the company of the adorable harp seal character from Creative Yoko Co., Ltd.

Those guests who like their bedspreads in the design of a notebook, and pillowcases that look like erasers, might get a kick out of the hotel's collaboration with KOKUYODOORS, a store operated by Japanese stationery company KOKUYO. It is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between the stationery company and a hotel.

In a collaboration with Japan Airlines 24 guestrooms at the hotel have been designed to reflect the interior of a JAL aircraft cabin. In what is the largest guestroom collaboration carried out in cooperation with the airline, the number of rooms matches the number of international destinations currently served by JAL from Haneda Airport. 

The collaboration provides guests with a chance to reflect on the history of the airline's international flight service which began 70 years ago with the Haneda-Honolulu-San Francisco route. Guests can experience some of this history through photographs displayed on the walls of their rooms.

At 1,717 rooms, Hotel Villa Fontaine Premier/Grand Haneda Airport is the largest airport hotel in Japan. The hotel is part of Haneda Airport Garden, a commercial complex home to shops, restaurants and a roof-top onsen spa from which bathers can see airplanes take to the skies.

Travelers using Haneda Airport can access a number of regions across Japan from the Haneda Airport Garden bus terminal.

With Hotel Villa Fontaine Premier/Grand Haneda Airport directly connected to Haneda's T3 international terminal, Sumitomo Fudosan Villa Fontaine aims to offer visitors to Japan new and unique experiences in the vicinity of what is the country’s largest airport.

Japan continues to experience a rebound in inbound visitors since the lifting of pandemic-related travel restrictions. Around 2.79 million foreign visitors came to Japan in February, 89.0 percent higher than in the same month the previous year and up 7.1 percent from 2019, according to the Japan National Tourism Organization.
