    I hate trying to find a good hotel when I’m gonna go on vacation.
    Especially one that moves >.<

  4. KinkyTom | 3:02 am |

    “Time zone cannot use the elevator excluding the person who use this building one and hotel of the Roppongi plaza which it moves in midnight and early morning.”

    E=mc2th ?

  5. Yugan | 3:21 am |

    Thank you, that notice makes everything crystal clear!

    (noted in diary at 1:00 am)

    I gotta swear off that Drink, Drinker these people import from Brazil when I go out to hit the Roppongi clubs…I coulda SWORE my hotel was RIGHT HERE when I left my room at 10 tonight…

  7. Brandon | 5:53 am |

    Oh. Now I see what I was doing wrong.

  8. Miccos | 6:09 am |

    So people in the Japanese time zone can’t use the evalator?…

    Aaaah… so that’s why it’s not possible to go to other floors…

  9. jjhitt | 6:19 am |

    It’s just a jump to the left…

  10. Ageless | 6:33 am |

    I’ll take the stairs.

  11. GoodGuy | 6:41 am |

    Geez, I’d figured they could bend the rules a little if I go through all the trouble of going near the place.

  12. Xila | 9:07 am |

    “We don’t serve time zones here.”

  13. DieselDragon | 9:17 am |

    Three bottles of Drink Drinker are required for passengers wishing to understand and use the Lift Lifter.

  14. DieselDragon | 9:24 am |

    Actually this sign might be so difficult to understand, I’ll try to translate it for anyone who’s curious or otherwise mystified: 🙂

    {b}[b] Please note: [/b]{/b}
    Between the hours of midnight and 6:00 AM, the elevator may only be used by guests staying at the Roppongi Plaza Hotel.
    Furthermore, guests will only be able to access the floor upon which they are staying, even if they wish to access hotel facilities located on other floors.

  15. DieselDragon | 9:25 am |

    I’d better ask if they have any rooms on the ground floor… 🙂

  16. DieselDragon | 9:27 am |

    Please also pay attention to the Hotel Passenger Notice which normally applies between the hours of midnight and 6:00 AM, or whenever the hotel is in motion. 🙂

  17. coffeebot | 9:28 am |

    I live in Eastern/Daylight Savings: does this apply me?

  18. bigcaddy | 9:28 am |

    please take stairs from afternoon to midnight.

  19. Ralph Hamilton | 10:05 am |

    Does bibulosity have anything to do with this sign?

  20. Lollerskate | 10:34 am |

    Japgrish signs: They’re to be noted, not understood.

  21. Big Fat Cat | 11:10 am |

    Finally Howl’s Moving Castle by Hayao Miyazaki becomes a reality and it’s been converted into a Hotel.

  22. Big Fat Cat | 11:11 am |

    Welcome to Hogwarts. Please enjoy the Moving stairs and ever changing floors.

  23. Paul | 3:22 pm |

    They must be talking about me, because I only move in midnight and early morning. At other hours I avoid being noticed by remaining perfectly still and blending into the wallpaper. I guess I’m hoofing it from now on.

  24. Ralph Hamilton | 5:36 pm |

    Taking of stairs will be punished by the official organ.

  25. Kitsune | 12:05 pm |

    Does anyone on know a hotel where the timezone can use the elevator? Is this like a human embodiment of the time zone? Do they have other rules like “Father time cannot use the subway?”

  26. Chuck | 8:34 pm |

    Coming soon to a theater near you, “The Time and Space Travelling Elevator Operator’s Wife.”

  27. Jennine | 9:17 am |

    Oh is that all??!!

  28. CrazyDan | 12:07 pm |

    I see, that elevator goes to the Twilight Zone, right?

  29. James Porobic | 1:50 am |

    … don’t even ask about the stairs.

  30. Samtaylor16 | 8:52 am |

    this is where the person reading it goes and throws himself off the building in desparation. 😉

  31. Paul V | 6:46 pm |

    Finally, an elevator that moves!

  32. JacobL | 2:24 am |

    Clear as Mud, that notice..(in Yoda speak)

  33. CAPPYMCCAPCAP | 11:16 am |

    Is this before, or after I punch in the 87,000 digit code?

  34. Hiatus | 9:28 pm |

    I thought the reminder was for those who will ride the roller coaster.

  35. Raymund Victor | 6:05 pm |

    who needs an airplane? this elevator is all i need!

  36. Ryan | 12:39 pm |

    Unfortunately the time displacement extends to the stairs as well, please to use the rope if possible to go to other floors.

  37. FatKenney | 6:13 pm |

    You can use the elevator, as long as you don’t go to another floor.

  38. Fady | 10:56 am |

    I think Mr GMT uses this one alone, so please try to give him some privacy

  39. Ptharien's Flame | 1:32 pm |

    Is that you, Doctor Who?

  40. Seventy2rd o clock | 2:24 pm |

    Oh, can I just jump through the Windows?
