Hotels situated near some stations in Tokyo, in order to attract some of Japan’s 20,000 rail enthusiasts, have started marketing their rooms as having a good view of the local railway.

Realising that many hotel guests preferred rooms that did not overlook the railway, hotel owners are keen to promote rooms with a railway view to enthusiasts. It has been estimated that Japan’s rail enthusiasts spend approximately £24m on their hobby every year.

One hotel even includes a gift of a paperweight made from railway track and a copy of the latest timetable with each room booked.
