All Travelers’ Youth Group is the only lodging industry group from Japan to join Global ReformBnB. I have participated in all events, including the 1st web event and the 5th event in Paris (France). And this time in Japan, Global ReformBnB will be the first general meeting to be launched as an official international organization.
[Regarding the invitation to Japan and holding the event in Kyoto] Global ReformBnB’s bid to host the event in Japan was held in Buenos Aires in November 2019, before the coronavirus pandemic, and how the tourism industry, including private lodging in Japan, where the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will be held, changed after the Olympics. proposed to understand. At that time, the All-Travel Federation Youth Division (director Haruhiko Suzuki) started working as the All-Travel Federation youth division to attract Japan in the fall of 2020, but the new coronavirus infection spread worldwide and the real event will be held after Buenos Aires in 2019. Instead, the Paris conference held in May this year was held in real for the first time in about two and a half years. This year, we invited Japan to hold the event again, which was scheduled for the fall of 2020, and invited it as an opportunity to raise issues outside, including the government, regarding private lodging problems that may occur during the recovery period of inbound after-corona. .
This year’s event in Japan will focus on the issue of private lodging in the background of the resurgence of inbound demand. Kyoto is one of the leading inbound tourist destinations in Japan, and is a city that has raised the issue of minpaku issues to the administration, especially among local governments. In addition to the 180-day rule of the Private Lodging Business Act stipulated by the government, the ordinance permits the operation (business) of residential areas only in the winter season. Since advanced city ordinances are being enforced in Japan as well, it was an opportunity to present the Kyoto model at the conference as an example of how regulations are applied to minpaku in Japan.
