This Tokyo Conference Room Looks Like Something Straight Out of Harry Potter


For many companies in Japan whose main employees work at home, renting a conference space becomes quite common when the need for a face-to-face meeting arises.

While such facilities often feature basic rooms with plain-looking set up, a firm in Akihabara, Tokyo is trying to break this boring mold by offering magic-themed conference rooms.


Zeeboon, an IT company has made their two meeting rooms called the Idea no Shiro (“Idea Castle”) available for anyone to rent at the start of this month, Rocketnews 24 reported.


Any Harry Potter fan would be stoked to hold meetings in the room dubbed as the “Royal Palace Magic School” which obviously took heavy inspiration from the pages of J.K. Rowlings’ popular book series.


Complete with an entrance that looks like a mysterious underground passage, the room borrowed heavily from the fantasy franchise’s wizardly lore.  Owl cages, swords, a stone throne and other décors of wizard/fantasy motif fill the room’s interior.


The other themed conference room, called “Alice’s White Room” has walls covered with passages and art taken from Lewis Carrol’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.


The fantasy-themed designs, according to Zeeboon, are bound to stimulate the creative, free-thinking mentality of the renting clients.


Both rooms, sized at 100 square meters, are fully-furnished with conference room necessities such as 60-inch monitors and wireless Internet service.  Each magical meeting room costs 30,000 yen (US$270) per hour to rent.
