Airbnb Inc. will now be able to operate in Japan without the risk of running into regulatory hurdles after the government passed a law that sets out rules for home sharing.

Japan’s upper house passed a legislative bill on Friday that lets private homes rent out space to paying guests, while limiting total stays to 180 nights a year. The law requires providers of such accommodation to register with local governments and lets local authorities impose their own restrictions.

So this means anyone who has an extra bedroom can rent it out to someone else? This is almost like running your own B&B and I think it is a great option for people to take in extra income too. I like this a lot actually. I think it would be better than staying somewhere that charges a lot more.
