Serious damage to tourism. Ryokan that takes more than a year to resume. Chiba Tateyama, September 17, 5:08
In Chiba Prefecture, where Typhoon No. 15 hit directly, the damage to the tourism industry is also serious. Some inns have been taking more than a year to reopen their business because of the lack of manpower in the construction industry.
The inn in Tateyama City Oga, “Mermaid Yukai Red Beans” was visited by 1,000 guests every year during the summer bathing season, but the typhoon No. 15 storm caused most of the roof to fall off and the floor Became submerged.
On the 9th of the month when the typhoon passed, I immediately asked an acquaintance carpenter to repair the building, but it was said that 7 of the 13 rooms were severely damaged, such as the roof being peeled off, and could not be repaired. .
It is difficult to secure a contractor who will continue to be short of manpower to dismantle the building and rebuild it. It will take more than a year to complete, so it is difficult to resume operations in the summer bathing season next summer.
In addition, the cost of rebuilding the building is about 100 million yen, and it is unclear whether insurance will cover everything, and it will be necessary to replace dirty futons, yukata, and home appliances, which will be a financial burden.
Osamu Yamazaki of management (45) "I do not stand the prospect of so much major damage did not even imagine. Reconstruction, but work hard and so are some people who look forward" had been talking to.
