Trouble finding hotel rooms in Tokyo (Asakusa) for April 2012

Jump to last reply

Does anyone know why so many hotels are fully booked six months in advance in the Asakusa area of Tokyo? We are looking at April 16-20, 2012 and it does not appear that there are any Japanese holidays. But when I try to book on any number of websites (Expedia, Agoda, etc.), I'm told there are no rooms. The same thing has been happening when trying to book rooms in Kyoto 10 days later. I thought tourists were avoiding Japan and that the hotels would be wide open...and even offering better prices. Apparently I was wrong.

If we don't stay in the Asakusa area, is there any other area (not too glitzy and noisy) that anybody would recommend? We don't want to spend more than $200 per night.
