Toyoko INN for railfans

Looking to stay at a quality business hotel, but don’t want to tear yourself away from the trains? Look no further: Toyoko INN delivers!

That’s right… From certain floors and rooms of the Toyoko INN chain of hotels, you can overdose on train watching without leaving the comfort of your bed. Just ask at the front desk to be accommodated. Here are some samples of train views from their various hotels, including the one I’m going to be staying in next week!

Not only do I get to enjoy Sendai and the hospitality of Tohoku University, but I’ll potentially get some great views of the Tohoku Shinkansen while I’m there. I thought Toyoko INN outdid itself when I received socks and q-tips as “presents” when I became a point club member a few years back, but I was wrong. Can’t wait!
