Most of Nintendo’s Products are widely publicised; we all know about their generation changing games and massive franchises. However a lesser-known venture is the Nintendo love hotel that was set up by Hiroshi some time between 1963 and 1968. Rooms were rented by the hour and Hiroshi was known to spend some of his time there himself. This bizarre period of Nintendo’s history also included products such as portioned rice (an utter failure) and the Daiya taxi company which was a success until union trouble brought it to its knees where upon the taxi firm and love hotel were closed.
