Hotel Why Thinks Zero Waste Is Not a Question

Accommodation Hotels Design Tokushima Shikoku

The beautiful mountains and lush nature are not the only things that attract people to the town of Kamikatsu in Japan’s western prefecture of Tokushima. The town also has a zero-waste policy and residents are known to recycle waste in 45 categories, which helped them achieve over an 80-percent rate of recycling. The town’s investments in broadband infrastructure have also made the destination a popular spot for tech satellite offices. Now the town also has Hotel Why: one of the first zero-waste call-to-action hotels in the world.
