Tokyo 2020 Olympics

Olympic fans find Tokyo hotel rooms in short supply next summer

Lodging prices soar after organizing committee fully books some facilities

Tokyo faces a serious shortfall in accommodations for next summer's Olympics, with organizers reserving rooms en masse and making it hard for spectators to plan their trips.

TOKYO -- People planning a trip to Tokyo for the 2020 Summer Olympics are already having trouble finding accommodations.

Some hotels in and around the capital have stopped taking reservations for the period of games, as organizers have many places booked solid from July 24 through Aug. 9, for the Olympics, and from Aug. 25 to Sept. 6 for the Paralympics. Many locations in Greater Tokyo, even those far from the city center, are short of rooms.
