KYOTO, Japan -- Nintendo fans will soon be able to spend the night at the company's former headquarters.

The project by Tokyo-based Plan Do See will turn the prewar building here into a 20-room hotel with restaurant, bar, gym and spa facilities. The design process will be supervised by the architectural firm of Pritzker Prize winner Tadao Ando.
