Hello, it is Mio.
The consumption tax rate is raised from 5% to 8% on April 1 in Japan.
Now, people purchase large amount of daily necessaries before consumption taxes rise.
Moreover, a further increase to 10% is scheduled for October 2015.
There have been concerns that such a change may hurt domestic demand for products.
Our accommodation fee is not changed by the consumption tax but is variable according to the season.
