The slash Kawasaki lifestyle hotel is a five-minute walk from Kawasaki Station and offers a state-of-the-art, digitally-focused accommodation experience.
The hotel is unique in that all rooms are equipped with a projector.
You can enjoy your favorite shows or movies on a large screen, making it possible to enjoy your trip in a cozy and snug way.
In this article, we would like to teach you how to make the most of your projector to achieve the best possible staycation at slash Kawasaki.
/Our Hotel’s Projector Environment
The projector that creates the powerful visual experience at slash Kawasaki is the EPSON (EF-100B).
// Projector Features
- High image quality is achieved using a laser light source. Even in bright daylight, with one thin curtain closed, you can enjoy a bright image.
- The speaker has a built-in bass-reflex 5W mono speaker with heavy bass, so you can also enjoy high-quality sound.
// How to Connect Your Device
The hotel connects to your device via HDMI and offers guests the following two types of connection at check-in.
- Wired connection using an HDMI cable and converter
This connection is mainly for iPhone users; it may not be possible to connect to Android and PCs.
- Wireless connection using Chromecast.
*Smartphone games, etc. cannot be projected.
/How to Get the Most Out of Your Projector
The following is a list of what you can do with your projector.
// Watch Films and Dramas
You can project your own Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu and other video streaming services onto an 80″ to 100″ screen.
This is a chance to watch films or dramas you’ve always wanted to watch on a big screen in a cozy environment with high quality visuals and sound! According to some of our female customers, they have used their stay to binge Korean dramas.
/// Watching Live Shows
The next most popular use of our projectors is for watching live shows.
You can watch DVDs of live videos of your favorite artists and idols or watch online streams.
By decorating the room with fans and towels, you can create your very own fan space.
Rooms tend to fill up during online live performances of famous idols, so please book early.
DVD/Blu-ray players can be rented for 1,000 yen per night.
// /Games on Nintendo Switch
What’s more, the projector can also be connected to a Nintendo Switch.
Connecting a Switch to the projector is a great way to play Mario Kart, Smash Bros. and other competitive games.
To connect, you need a Switch, an AC adaptor and an HDMI cable.
If you don’t want to bring everything with you, you can borrow a Switch from the front desk for 1,000 yen per night, so please ask our staff anytime.
*We do not lend out software, so please bring your own.
/ How to Enjoy Your Projector to the Max
We recommend using these two services to enjoy the projector the most.
/// Beds with Reclining Function
The first perk is the bed with a reclining function.
While normal hotel beds are always flat, our beds have a reclining function attached to them for a more comfortable projector video experience.
This means that you can watch movies and live shows in any position you like, such as on the sofa when you want to watch while you eat or flat when you want to watch while you sleep.
//// Room Service
The second perk is room service.
If you’re wondering what to eat while watching a movie, take a look at the room service menu.
There is a wide range of food options, from hearty food menus to snacks and alcoholic drinks.
The most popular item is the slash French fries (price: 600 yen).
This dish is made with Granapadano cheese, truffle oil and truffle powder. Enjoy truffle-scented French fries that you won’t forget.
Other dishes include pizza, curry, popcorn, craft beer and a variety of ciders, so feel free to order anything you like.
You can also order delivery items such as UBER EATS, which you can pick up at the ground floor entrance.
Have you got an idea of the kind of staycation you can have in your room using the projector?
We hope you can enjoy watching movies and TV dramas, watching livestreams and playing Nintendo Switch at our hotel.
