The number of people who stayed at hotels and other accommodation facilities in Japan hit a record low in 2021 for the second straight year, according to government data, as the coronavirus pandemic led to prolonged border controls and a slowdown in the recovery of domestic travel demand.

The cumulative total of guests at hotels and inns was 315.75 million, down 4.8% from 2020 and 47% from 2019, according to preliminary data recently released by the Japan Tourism Agency.
