On December 15, Hen-na Hotel Kagoshima Tenmonkan opened along Takamibaba Street in Tenmonkan, Kagoshima City.

The Tokyo-based HIS Hotel Holdings manages the hotel. It is the 20th of its kind in Japan and overseas and the first in Kagoshima Prefecture. It is located within a minute’s walk from Tenmonkan Dori Station on the Kagoshima City Tram line.

The Hen-na Hotel, meaning “Weird Hotel,” chain features advanced technology. The first hotel of the chain in Huis Ten Bosch, Nagasaki Prefecture, was accredited by Guinness World Records as the first hotel staffed by robots. At the Tenmonkan hotel, a holographic dinosaur and ninja, projected utilizing hologram technology, will assist guests checking in at the front desk, and the Baggage Port will allow guests to drop off their luggage by simply waving a dedicated card over it.

The top floor has a large public bath, the first such facility in the chain. A sauna is also available for male guests only. The first-floor restaurant is under construction, scheduled to open on March 1 next year. The second floor houses a reading space with approximately 1,800 manga comic books, which guests can freely enjoy while staying at the hotel.

The hotel has 90 guest rooms, with rates per room per night starting at 6,000 yen for a standard double room, 6,750 yen for a deluxe double room, and 7,500 yen for a twin room.
