Minimum 'minpaku' stay to be shortened to three days, two nights

posted on September 11, 2016

A government panel has decided to shorten the minimum stay for tourists at minpaku accommodations based on rented private homes to three days and two nights instead of seven days and six nights.

The move, decided Friday by the Council on National Strategic Special Zones, headed by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, is expected to help spread public use of minpaku services and ease the hotel shortage being caused by the tourism boom.
Such services are available in Tokyo’s Ota Ward and in Osaka Prefecture under the national strategic special zone project.
