    So does that mean that they charge after that, or you aren't allowed to stay long? (If they do charge after that how much are they charging?)

    The problem is that at Roppongi Supercharger, the parking fee is $24 per hour ($2 per 10 min).

    It's interesting that all three (well, except the Hyatt) changed their policies so drastically. I was impressed with both Odaiba and the Palace hotel's service with a smile. The Hyatt made feel like I was doing something wrong the whole time. I try to charge at Totsuka on the way in and the way out if I can.

    I generally support the parking fee after the charge was ended, though Roppingi's 30 minutes is too short. I think they are extremely crowded on weekends so I hope they make it one hour on weekdays, 30 minutes on weekends if that's really necessary.

    Too many people leave their car at the superchargers. I guess that's why Tesla needed to implement these rules. I think they think too small though - they should add MORE stalls before asking owners to wait. That's the cost of selling cars in Tokyo. Or they should give up selling cars to people without home charging.
