My husband and I will be visiting Tokyo for the first time this May. We’re both so excited. Ahead of our trip, I booked our accommodations in Central Tokyo on AirBnB.
Then I came across news articles about AirBnb’s current legal issues in Tokyo and Japan in general. Resources in English are still rather few, and details are far from clear and sometimes even contradictory. While I’ve read about cancelled reservations in light of recent developments, it seems to still be more or less business as usual for most AirBnB hosts.
Can anyone enlighten me as to AirBnB’s status in Japan? I understand there are locations already implementing some new regulations, such as Ota Ward. What about for other areas? I’m quite worried.
Would appreciate any insights on this from anyone. Thanks
