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)?

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.

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