Hotel packages featuring two meals but no overnight accommodation have been growing in popularity since autumn. Such plans are taking off among people who are keen to enjoy their holidays without traveling to distant locations and who would rather enjoy a hotel’s facilities for several hours without staying the night. For example, Hakone Kowakien Yunessun Inn, a hotel in Hakonemachi, Kanagawa Prefecture, offers a two-meal daytime plan for 6,500 yen per person for a room that usually costs 15,000 yen as part of a two-meal, overnight-stay package. The deal also includes admission to an open-air bath at an adjacent spa theme park, Hakone Kowakien Yunessun.
