They’re planning to open the house by April 2019, and to get funds to create the project, they’re using crowdfunding. They will begin that in late July, with a variety of options which range from 3,000-10,000 yen.

The Otaku House also has several facilities, such as an anime-style capsule room, a living room where you can watch anime and read manga, a cosplay room, and a VR room.

Now that certainly is a great place for anime fans to stay, and they’re located in Akihabara.
