International guest nights were up 168.4% over 2021 or down 93.1% over 2019 to 660,000. The total was up 73.4% over 2021 or down 24.7% over 2019 to 34.5 million. 


The occupancy rate was 44.2% overall, 16.4 lower points than 2019. By type of accommodation, the rates were 32.2% for ryokans, 41.3% for resort hotels, 54.8% for budget hotels and 50.6% for city hotel. The occupancy rate of ryokans recovered well to a 4.5 points reduction compared to May 2019, probably boosted by the domestic travel campaign by prefecture.
