Numerous accreditation schemes are available for small and medium scale nature-based lodges. However, time, effort, and price can sometimes be a bi obstacle to embrace the movement. Japan Ecolodge Association hopes with a long-term vision that a certification scheme be introduced in Japan for the benefit of operators and users with affordability and international standards. This checklist is fully recognized by Global Sustainable Tourism Council in November, 2012..
