According to Hokkoku Newspaper, Yuwaku Hot Spring , the model town of Hanasaku Iroha, has been humming with business since the start of the anime. After the earthquake in March, nearly 1,500 guests have canceled the hotel reservations in Yuwaku but the rooms of all the nine hotels were fully booked by the anime fans just before the holidays in May. The bottles of Yuwaku Cider have been flying off the shelves because the cider was shown in the ED.

Tell me about it, and at least the owners have the brain to actually allow anime tourism for their profit, unlike with Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi.

Yeah, I agree. I'd be happy to have so many new customers. Who cares if they're fans because of the anime? The owners for the Hoshizora hotel probably lost quite a bit of money.

It's always nice to see an anime having a positive effect on the real world! Especially one as good as Hanasaku.<3

What happens when they realize that the people who work at the spa are better characters than those in the anime.

Interesting. They do seem kind of alike.
I don't know much about this, but I've noticed the same thing in every thread with this topic. Is there a relation with the hordes of fans taking pictures being grown men, and the anime always being about the life of young girls (haven't really seen it, so corect me if I'm wrong)?

Most late-night anime is explicitly made for grown men. It's a well-established fact. So of course the "anime tourists" would be the same 20s-30s guys who watch the shows.

Looks like some hotels know how to not be picky about their customers.

Because this is really gonna help increase their income.

The story about Hoshikaka was a fake made by a selfish blogger. The blogger took pictures of the hotel repeatedly without staying there and the owner asked him to book a room before taking pictures. The blogger got mad at the owner and posted a fake story in his blog. The entry about the fake story has already been removed from the blog. I don't know where you guys knew the story but please stop spreading a malicious fake rumor.

That's so cool! :D I wish I could go there with my friends! :3
“I have a girl I love named Sakura. Well actually, it’s one-sided on my part. Sakura is totally in love with a guy named Sasuke. She tries so hard, chasing after him and trying to win his love. When she’s at it, her smile is the cutest thing. There’s no explaining it. Before I realized it, I was in love with her. I would never try to force her to love me. I’d be no different from that guy just now if I did. So I made up my mind. In the same way that Sakura tries so hard to win Sasuke over, I’m going to do my best to win Sakura over.” -NARUSAKU FOREVER!

Aside from the "omagod, its hanasaku!" - I wouldn't mind living in such an environment at all..
