Otsu, Shiga Pref. – A Japanese inn in Shiga Prefecture that had banned Russians and Belarusians in protest against the invasion of Ukraine retracted the move Tuesday after being urged to do so by local authorities, the inn and local officials said.
The inn, located in Nagahama, admitted that rejecting guests from the two countries was the wrong way to denounce Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. No customers from the two countries sought to stay at the inn while the ban was in place.
