Expanding local experience listings to all over Japan, Airbnb increased bookings of local experiences in Japan by 786% year on year as of June 2018. Now Japan is the second country in the world in terms of local experience bookings. Airbnb has accordingly decided to add more listings and available areas.
As one of promotions in Japan, Airbnb has opened a curation site to experience world-famous architectures in the world in cooperation with world-famous Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. The site contains a new experience listing to tour architectures in Kochi Prefecture designed by Kuma.
