JAPAN GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCED NEW TEMPORARY LODGING LAW TO START ON JUNE 15
Wednesday June 13th, 2018
The private temporary lodging, or “minpaku,” law, which comes into force on June 15, requires hosts to register with the government and imposes other rules and restrictions.
Airbnb had 62,000 listings in Japan earlier this year, but as of May 11, the Japanese government had approved 152 of 724 applications for home-sharing, according to the Japan Tourism Agency.
The new law limits home-sharing to 180 days a year, a cap hosts say makes it difficult to turn a profit, and leaves final decision-making up to local governments.
