Toyoko Inn Co. President Norimasa Nishida said Monday the firm will retrofit all the hotels that it illegally modified after they were approved by municipal governments as meeting barrier-free codes, and will hire disabled people to promote their employment.

Nishida also apologized for not taking the case seriously. At a previous news conference, he had downplayed the modifications, including removing required parking for disabled people, reckoning there was no major problem.
