I had a look at some of the rates offered under this campaign (used browser translation as the ANA IHG website is not available in English), and it appears that either this campaign is not available for all the room types OR hotels have inflated their rates to bring the rate reasonable after applying the government-funded discount.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
