In Tokyo, executives individually visit restaurants that do not respond to requests for closures or shortened working hours, and are strengthening their efforts, but according to the city, many stores explain that they cannot respond due to management deterioration etc. The issue is how to ensure the effectiveness of the request.

Under the state of emergency, the capital has requested that restaurants that serve alcohol be closed and stores that do not serve alcohol be closed until 8:00 pm, but this is the fourth time that the declaration has been made and it will not be accepted. is increasing.

For this reason, from the 3rd of this month, Tokyo executives individually visited stores that did not respond to requests in five downtown areas such as Shinjuku and Shibuya, and started emergency measures to strengthen their direct efforts to the store owners.

According to the capital, there have been about 400 stores so far, but only a few have indicated their intention to respond to the request.

Many stores explained that they couldn't respond immediately, saying that their management had deteriorated and they couldn't pay their rent or employee salaries.

If you do not respond, the city will issue individual requests and orders based on the law, but the key is to obtain the cooperation of the store as the requests for closure and shortening of working hours are prolonged.

Area to work on Roppongi Akasaka Kichijoji will be added

In addition, there is a sense of unfairness with the stores that we are cooperating with, and from the 20th of this month, we plan to add Roppongi, Akasaka, and Kichijoji to the target areas to work on, and how to correct the unfairness and ensure effectiveness. The challenge is to do it.
