Waqoo Horyuji is hoping to attract more foreign guests now that it has opened as the first hotel built in the vicinity of Horyuji, a World Heritage Buddhist temple in the prefecture of Nara.

The hotel operator, Waqoo Project Co., said it expects foreign customers initially to account for about half of its overall guests, but it is aiming for the percentage to rise to around 60 or 70 percent eventually.
