Japan’s Legoland, a theme park devoted to the famous Denmark-born building blocks, opened up in 2017. But it wasn’t until earlier this year that a hotel themed after the toys opened for business. The Legoland Hotel sits minutes away from the main park and offers themed rooms revolving around pirates and ninjas. Legoland Hotel,2-7-1 Kinjofuto, Minato Ward; legoland.jp
