EVENT BRIEFING

 The booming tourism sector, along with the major sport events, is driving a strong investment in Japan's Hotel sector.


Japan targets 40 million inbound tourists by 2020, they loosened the restrictions on tourist visa and opened up the door to tourists. Japan will host some of the world's top sport events such as Olympics, Paralympics, Rugby Union World Cup. The occupation rate and per room revenue figure is Japan ranks among the best in Asia, it all resulted as the top hotel investment honeypot in Asia. Investors have been building or renovating hotels and resorts across the country. In the three major markets - Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto - the number of hotel rooms is expected to increase by 38% between 2017 to 2020. Tokyo remains tightly supplied, with a shortfall of around 3,500 rooms. 80,000 new hotel rooms will open in Japan's eight major cities by the end of 2020.


With the technologies and innovations taking place, hospitality business is becoming more technology-driven. Hotel Owners and Operators in Japan still face many challenges.


Accommodation needs will be redefined by travellers' preference for experiences rather than goods. With 90% of new supply consisting of limited-service hotels, of which 50% comprise of business hotels, new hotel supply is unbalanced. Many of the existing properties have aged, with a lack of modern facilities. Travelling from emerging markets’ expectation are harder to meet than before, with the mass application of digital technologies, hoteliers needs to stay in trend and equip their facilities and management methodologies with digitalized tools as well. Hotels seeking to remain competitive must respond to tourists’ changing preferences and increasingly diverse requirements. Ultimately, hotels will need to improve the quality of lodging experience, rather than solely provide a place to stay.
