Kyoto booked out?

Jump to last reply

I just came across a japan-guide article about getting lodging in Kyoto during peak season:
http://www.japan-guide.com/news/0029.html

There was a recent post on this subject where I suggested a tour package from Japanican but was not sure how it worked.

The article confirms what I suspected about those packages:

Tip 3 - Book as part of a package

One reason why hotel vacancies get scarce in Kyoto is that tour companies reserve large blocks of hotel rooms to bundle them with transportation or admission tickets into tour packages. Japanican, for example, offers hotel rooms as part of their Shinkansen Tour packages. While competitively priced, many of these tour packages are tied to train tickets and would not be ideal for Japan Rail Pass holders.


I think a Japanese travel agent could help in any case and would be heading to a local H.I.S. Travel office (or other agent) if I couldn't find what I wanted.
