    Abstract

    This study analyzes the availability of room opportunity types collected from a Japanese hotel booking site. The status of opportunity type is empirically analyzed from a comprehensive point of view. We characterize demand-supply situations of room prices at each region with both room availability and average room rate. The average room rate decreases in terms of the room availability in many districts. However, it is found that the average room rate increases with respect to the room availability in some districts. This is an evidence that the theory of demand and supply is not always satisfied in Japanese hotel industry.
