Yadoya Guest House closed its doors on April 30. The novel coronavirus was one of the reasons behind it. I think inbound tourism will struggle for the next year.
After I graduated from high school, I went on a working holiday to Australia. From there I went straight on to backpack around Southeast Asia and other places. I met many different people during my travels. Many of them told me Japan is too far away and expensive, and that they couldn’t go anyway because they had nowhere to stay. Yadoya Guest House started from a simple feeling then that if there was a place for those people, then they might come here to Japan.
