I had heard about Airbnb before. I had read about the (previous) legal issues of offering Airbnb accommodation in Japan: Airbnb gets Cabinet OK as Japan sets rules on home-sharing businesses | The Japan Times But - for reasons unknown - we had never seriously considered using it ourselves. Until @Maciamo , who some of you will still remember and who visited Japan a few weeks ago, introduced me to the service. We are now going to travel over the obon holidays, completely relying on Airbnb. In the past, it used to be quite difficult for us to find pet-friendly hotels; it was a matter of a few clicks on the app to find places that accept dogs. I was just wondering whether any of you have already used Airbnb in Japan and if you'd be willing to share your experiences. I am also thinking of adding a review category dedicated to Airbnb accommodation.
