(e.g.) Machiya House / 3 Guests / 1 Night

Total Accommodation fee for 1 Night = 30,000 yen

30,000 yen ÷ 3 Guests = 10,000 yen/per person (per night)
Accommodation Tax = 200 yen/per person

Total Accommodation Tax (3 Guests, 1 Night) = 600 yen

(e.g.) Machiya House / 2 Guests / 2 Nights

Total Accommodation fee for 2 Nights = 90,000 yen (45,000 yen/per night)

45,000 yen ÷ 2 Guests = 22,500 yen/per person (per night)
Accommodation Tax: 500 yen/per person
