Hotels provided by Kinki Nippon Tuorist cost about JPY13000-25000 per day per person. As we described in the hotel page, there are many hotels in Tokyo, and you can book cheaper hotels by yourself. We strongly reccomend you to book as early as possible, since the hotel fees are getting higher due to Rugby World Cup in Japan in autumn.
