Japan Hotel Failures Jump 57 Pct in 2020

   Tokyo, Jan. 13 (Jiji Press)--The number of bankruptcies in the hotel industry in Japan in 2020 jumped 57.3 pct from the previous year to 118, according to Tokyo Shoko Research Ltd.
   The annual total surpassed 100 for the first time since 2013, mainly due to the impact of the novel coronavirus epidemic, the credit research firm said Tuesday.
   Liabilities left by collapsed hotel operators totaled 58 billion yen, with failures of midsize or larger firms increasing.
   By prefecture, 12 of the bankrupt companies were located in Nagano, home to many spa and ski resorts, 11 in Tokyo and nine in Shizuoka.
   "The situation is expected to remain severe this year" for the hotel industry, a Tokyo Shoko Research official said. "Bankruptcies are feared to increase further."
