Japan's hotels saw rates climb in 2016.
Despite the rise, occupancy rates have risen during the same period with record numbers of foreign tourists visiting Japan.
According to Travel Daily Asia:
Japan’s hotel sector experienced a steady increase in ADR (average daily rate) last year.
According to the full-year data from STR, the country’s ADR climbed 5.2% to JPY15,396 (approx. US$136) in 2016, due in part to the recovery of the yen, which increased nearly 10% against the US dollar in 2016. This marked the first time the yen had increased in value since 2011.
