Have you ever wanted to dive into the world of sci-fi anime Gintama? Well, now you can, because the Sunshine City Prince Hotel in Tokyo’s Ikebukuro district will have a hotel room entirely themed after the show from April 14 to August 31.

Here’s a little tour of what you can find in the room:

Even before going inside, there’s a wanted poster for Katsura outside the room. The door is decorated with a sign that says “Yorozuya Gin-chan.”

Before going inside this Japanese-style room, wipe your feet on the “Yorozuya Gin-chan” doormat.

Salesman Gintoki, Catherine, Otose, and pixelated Tama are there to greet you when you come in.

The entrance room is also decorated with cardboard standees of Okita, Hijikata, and Tsukuyo. You can also get your head bitten off by Sadaharu on your way to the bathroom.

The fridge not only has magnets of idol Otsu…

…but also, there are bowls of mayonnaise and sweet red beans like the ones Hijikata and Gintoki love to eat in the show.

Kyubei’s family (including the monkey whose name is too long to write in this article) are waiting in the bathroom.

Even the mirror is decorated–get a fro while you’re washing your face.

A little Elizabeth dressed as Katsura asks “Excuse me, I’d like to ask for directions…”

The main room is completely decked out in Gintama merch.

All visitors to the Gintama room get to take home this set of goods, which includes an official Gintama loincloth.

The table also has a poster for the upcoming live-action movie, along with notebooks from characters Seita and Yamazaki.

Yamazaki’s notebook is covered in crazy notes reading “sweet bean bread” over and over again, but visitors can leave their comments and post their experiences on Twitter with a hashtag listed in the book.

The walls and fusuma doors are decorated with illustrations of the characters–even the shogun is present in his tidy whities!

Each of these doors hide even more secrets, including Prince Hata and Kagura’s dad.

If you pull back the window cover, Gintoki’s master is knocking on the glass with his notebook beside him.

Various replicas of goods that appeared in the show–including Justaway, the Patriot, and Elizabeth’s sign–decorate the edge of the main room. The wallpaper is themed after protagonist Gintoki’s Yorozuya office.

Pull back the door on the compartment under the TV will reveal stalker Shinsengumi leader Kondo. The sign above the TV reads “strawberry milk.”

Kagura is nowhere to be found in the closet, but this hugging doll of Gintoki as well as a sign reading “Pinko” are present!

Madao sits in a box reading “Please adopt me” in front of the shoe cupboard.

The room has a number of hidden Justaways scattered around. Here’s just one of them, hiding on the ceiling.

All anime seasons of Gintama can be viewed with English subtitles on Crunchyroll. Sentai Filmworks released the Gintama anime in America on DVD until episode 51 and released the first animated film on DVD and Blu-ray. Crunchyroll has announced that they will take over the home video release of the series. Viz Media once published the manga in North America, but ceased publication as of volume 23. The sixty-eighth volume was released in Japan earlier this month.
