Hotels in Japan vary greatly in providing facilities to the tourists who are visiting, but they are very efficient in utilizing the room, and seemed narrow for most travelers.
It is indeed interesting as a unique experience when you're on vacation to Japan, particularly to the cities and attractions of interest there.
Well, this time the news is written in a life style site, CNN Indonesia, January 25, made me think about a lot of things. What is this? Title attract attention, "China Tourism Board Boycott Hotel Chains in Japan."
I read the whole news, quotes another article on the Reuters on Wednesday, January 25, that the criticism began after Toshio Motoya, the boss of the hotel chain APA Group, stated this in a book he wrote.
You know if it is actually realized by China's tourism authority, will have broad impact, because with increasing time, tourists from China increasingly attract the attention of many countries in the world.
Throughout 2016, as many as 6.3 million Chinese tourists visited Japan, up by 25 percent from the previous year.
Chinese tourists got the focus of many countries, the number of Chinese tourists to overseas more than 100 million per year, so if every country was visited by about five percent, or five million people per year, the positive impact of foreign exchange for the contribution of a country.
The case in Nanjing in 1937 has indeed been passed a long, bloody massacre committed by Japanese troops in Nanjing, China. However, Motoya, who uses the pen name Seiji Fuji, writes that the massacre in Nanjing would not be possible.
"They say that the Japanese army to do that, but it's impossible."
Never know what really happened, China Tourism Board considers what is written by Motoya an act of provocation.
Zhang Lizhong spokesman said, "We asked all businesses in China's tourism industry to boycott that hotel chain."
They requested that tourists from China to avoid the services provided by the hotel chain in Japan, and the APA Group has not provided a statement related to it.
