There have surely been many opportunities for hardcore fans to figuratively (and, sometimes, literally) eat, drink and sleep GUNDAM, but this might be the first occasion where the practice has been enabled in such an involved official capacity. ANN’s relayed some news about two GUNDAM-themed rooms that’ll be available for stay at the Grand Pacific La Daiba in Odaiba, Tokyo.

There will be the Room-G Special Type and the Room-G Standard type, each situated by the hotel’s famous life-sized GUNDAM statue (but, unfortunately, without clear views of the behemoth.) The rooms are only available for single-night bookings, and stays will be priced from $158 to $330 a night depending on the room and the number of guests.

Indeed, the economics of such an offer are on full display here, for since there are only two G-Suites being offered, the hotel’s only allowing one-night-stays to presumably allow enough fine folks (like yourself?) the chance to feel like they’re sleeping in a mecha suit world.

And yes, I was serious about this place offering the chance to eat GUNDAM. Check out the promo pics below and be beholden to room service with distinctly GUNDAM garnish.

Sounds like fun. But it will be a while before I make it to Japan.

Is gambling legal in Japan, because oh would I love to see what someone could do with a Gundam casino.

I'd stay there for a vacation, but I bet it would cost a fortune...

Great to know that life-size GUNDAM mech is still around, I could have sworn it had been taken down at some point, maybe they put it back up again. It's still one of the most ridiculously cool things ever built.

The food looks pretty good too. Mmmm.
