They could also have limited the number of rooms available for a while to ensure that guests do not have to wait 2-3 hours past stated checkin time to finally get their room. I'm sure that this is pissing off the many Japanese guests who stay just one night!

I think it looks like they got too greedy for their own good.

It is telling that on the PH Kyoto website, the Reviews page says that "50% (of guests) would recommend our property".
They definitely got greedy. This is also the time they can charge the most besides Sakura season.
