In Tokyo, the new locations are:
- Asakusa, Japan's iconic destination; 
- Nihombashi, where the atmosphere from the feudal Edo period is still alive; 
- Ikebukuro, the emerging capital of Cool Japan with manga, anime, arts, and 
games in abundance.

In Osaka, buzzing with the anticipation of Expo 2025, exciting Shinsaibashi 
with excellent access from airports now has two new MIMARU hotels.

While many visitors to Japan travel with their families or in groups, hotels 
that offer the luxury of relaxation to such large groups are limited in most 
urban areas. Apartment Hotel MIMARU hotels are located in Tokyo, Osaka, and 
Kyoto, offering excellent access. MIMARU accommodates large groups on extended 
stays, with spacious rooms (40 sq. meters and larger) furnished with stocked 
kitchens, a living/dining area, and laundromats in each hotel. The name MIMARU 
is a neologism from the Japanese phrase "MInna de toMARU" meaning "stay 
together." Many guests appreciate MIMARU's apartment-style hotels because they 
offer a comfortable home-away-from-home space to experience Japan, enabling 
guests to feel at home.


MIMARU also has diverse themed rooms that make the Japan experience even more 
memorable. The Pokemon Room, where a huge stuffed Snorlax and original 
Pokemon-themed tableware await guests, is immensely popular among Pokemon fans 
from around the world. Visitors can also play "Find the Hidden Ninja!" in the 
Ninja Room, created under the supervision of the Japan Ninja Council, with 
displays of "shuriken" (ninja stars) and scrolls and ninja motifs hiding in 
surprising places. Other themed rooms include a Premium Party Room furnished 
with a sushi counter and an Ukiyo-e (Japanese woodblock print) Room adorned 
with works by Hokusai and original MIMARU works created by modern ukiyo-e 
artists. Guests can experience Japan in an entertaining way.
