* Since we have registered as legitimate operator in Tokyo (different with other hosts who actually hide from the landlords), we need to follow the rules of local government to report the list of guests to the building management company (not the local government). This is completely not a privacy issue for guests since we already know the name of the leader of your group. You just only tell us the name lists. This actually help guests in case of emergency
