Here's a link with some sites.

The thread is about summer, but you should check anyway. Prices go up for hotels and air fare during New Year's holiday, Golden Week and mid-summer Obon holidays.

Try here, too.

You may need to consider staying in Yokohama or the Tokyo suburbs. The Toyoko Inn website shows availability at Wako-shi Ekimae (Saitama) and at Saitama Toda-Koen-eki Nishi-Guchi. They may have additional availability elsewhere in the broader Tokyo area. Check the maps for proximity to Tokyo.

tried Yokohama too.. some how we are hitting a wall for these dates, is it that several hotels actually close for the New years?? Some one had suggested that, but being from hospitality myself, I find it bizarre...

Guys we really need this stay!!! Help pls...

I sent you a private message with some available hotels I had found... if you post your budget, why you are traveling, and how many people it would help. I saw a lot of capsule hotels (male only) available, if that can be your travel style.. but no idea who/what/why you are traveling so maybe that might not work out for you. Help us, help you.

I doubt hotels close on NY's eve in Japan. Most likely booked out.

Japan is a developed country and the tourist industry is developed and one of the best in the world.

Not knowing your budget makes it hard to assist.

A quick look at Rakuten and Jalan.net shows availability on those 2 nights.

There are places out in Tachikawa or out further that have availability. Tachikawa is "commuter" distance and is a town of its own. It's not the middle of Tokyo, but has modern conveniences of department stores and restaurants, so even if you're "out there," there's a community which would be fun to explore.

Just FYI, department stores are closed on Jan. 1. If you find a small shrine or temple to visit in the neighborhood on Dec. 31, it'll be an extra treat!

New Year's is a major holiday in Japan, with enormous numbers of Japanese folks travelling.
