Some hotels in Tokyo, Osaka slash rates by 55%


JAPANiCAN — JTB’s hotel, ryokan & Sunrise Tours booking site for overseas guests — has cut up to 55% off the regular price of top hotels in Tokyo and Osaka, with more to come. Between now and March, coinciding with Yokoso! Japan Weeks 2009, travelers coming to Japan can receive big discounts on some of the top name hotels in Tokyo, including the ever-popular Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku and the famous Imperial Hotel in Ginza, as well as the stylish Hyatt Regency in Osaka.

The so-called Yen-Buster Campaign has been designed to help visitors to Japan make real savings, without compromising on quality. By selecting only renowned hotels in popular areas for special cuts, JAPANiCAN hopes to allow all visitors to experience the best that Japan has to offer, at an affordable price.

Seeing the local hotels don't want the foreigners, it is the least Japan can do. What happens when visitors expect the best of Japan and they are disappointed with everything else? Like gaging on smoke ever where, walking with your bags ever where even up stairs, extremely expensive food costs in these hotels, non-English or non-Spanish or non-any other language speaking people. While Tokyo might be easy to navigate, when you navigate it, what do you see? How many temples can you really visit. What other things are there to do? Shopping? Picture menu restaurants because staff can't communicate, fish market (o they don't want visitors now)

How about a real campaign that takes all the headache's out of visiting Japan. A tour that westerners can sign-up for and go on.

I recommend the following tour guide. (made by me ;> )

5 day vacation in or around Tokyo.

DAY 1 (1 day Hato bus tour) about 10,000 yen including lunch This will take you all around Tokyo and you can get an English, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, French, etc. Explanation on almost everything in Japan.

DAY 2 (Hakone Onsen Area) Odakyu line has an excellent discount package After a full day of walking viewing etc. An onsen trip is a perfect day.

DAY 3 (Shinjuku, Hahajuku, Shibuya visit) Start in the morning and walk around Shinjuku Park. It's a beautiful city park. Visit Meji shrine a little longer. After Shopping in fashion crazy harajuku and shibuya are excellent places to see a fun size of Japan. Rest of the day visiting places again visited by the Tour.

DAY 4 (Kamakura) It's a whole day. Walk along the ocean after visiting the Budda.

DAY 5 (Simply Ueno) Ueno, Ueno Park, and National Art Museum in Ueno

Hotels in Japan are not that expensive. If you think they are, you're either not doing your research or not earning enough.

..."help visitors to Japan make real savings..."

This is oxymoronic. Visitors dont come to Japan to save. Tourists come to spend, or they dont come at all.

With the yen so strong anyone who was considering visting Japan would think twice now. Even with these hotel prices reduced, it's still expensive for a European tourist.

Even with these hotel prices reduced, it's still expensive for a European tourist.

Or for an American. I visited Japan last fall for 3 weeks, and had bought yen back in July of 2007 when the rate was about 115 yen to the dollar. With the current exchange rate of about 91 to the dollar, there's no way I could make the trip now or anytime soon.

Wherever I've stayed in Japan, I've never paid more than 8,800 yen per night. (Usually a lot less!) Business hotels are perfect when you're interested in saving a buck and seeing Japan every day, not enjoying the amenities of a hotel.

Business hotels go for ¥5000 a day, are next to train stations and adequate and clean. You do not travel to Japan to live at a hotel. Waste of time. And, you can eat very cheaply here too while enjoying what the locals eat.

noborito- I like your tour ideas, but you forgoy to include my favorite part of Japan..JR Trains!! I spent a whole day just riding any train I could and getting off at random stops, I really saw places that I might have never seen and it was fun to just "get lost".

Picture menu restaurants because staff can't communicate

Hey, I like those picture menus!

Is this a joke? Check out the link given above http://article.japanican.com/en/articles/japanican_special_yen_buster.html and you'll see rates for one person based on double occupancy. This means the rates are at least twice of what you see in the website. These rates are not a bargain at all!
