TOKYO — The New Sanno Hotel, operated by the Navy and catering to U.S. Forces personnel in Japan and the Pacific since September 1983, has closed its doors until further notice, Fleet Activities Yokosuka officials said Friday.

No approximate date for reopening was given. The hotel was closed, officials said, because unreliable means of local transportation was making it difficult for the hotel’s staff to travel to and from the hotel and home.

The Sanno has 149 rooms and six types of accommodations ranging from family to single occupancy.
