Our response to COVID-19

Mimatsu's Prevention Measures

  • 1. Employees must wear masks while at work.
  • 2. Employees have their physical condition checked every day (by body temperature measurement, etc.), and employees who are ill do not work.
  • 3. Employees working in the kitchen wear gloves as well as masks when cooking.
  • 4. Alcohol disinfection: We use alcohol to thoroughly disinfect guest rooms, room keys, and slippers, as well as common areas such as the lobby and elevators.
  • 5. In public spaces such as the lobby, we have reduced the number of chairs and spaced them farther apart.
  • 6. We have installed a slipper sterilization box in the common bath, have staff make regular patrols, and request that guests avoid the "Three Cs" (closed spaces with poor ventilation, crowded places with many people nearby, and close-contact settings such as close-range conversations).
  • 7. Dining areas are normally restricted to guest rooms and private rooms, but when dining in the dining hall, we maintain intervals of at least 2 meters. Once a table is used by a guest group, it will not be available to other guests until the first group checks out.

Requests to Guests

  • 1. Cooperation with temperature checks.
  • 2. Show government identification when checking in.
  • 3. Wear masks in public spaces.
  • 4. Wash hands and disinfect with alcohol as needed.
  • 5. Notify the front desk if you feel unwell.
  • 6. Use of common baths by non-guests is restricted in order to prevent the "Three Cs."
