Tokyo to Raise Hotel Tax Rate for Tourists (2023) | Japan Travel Update

TOKYO, Jul 28 (ONLY in JAPAN * GO) - There has been talk on Tokyo’s raise of accommodation tax (leisure tax) on visitors which is ¥100 under ¥10,000 a night and ¥200 over that.

The city has a massive shortfall in their budget for tourism expenses so this is the easiest plan, but they still wouldn’t raise enough to cover it.
