The oldest continually-operating business in the world is the Nishiyama Onsen Keiunkan, a hotel in Japan. That doesn't mean it hasn't changed. Or changed ownership. And the title itself is open to interpretation. It all depends on how you define your terms. This hotel was once the oldest continually-operated family business in the world, but the current owner was pretty much adopted into it, if you aren't hung up on legal terms. Tom Scott had the opportunity to stay at this lovely place and explore its history.
I love Tom Scott vids.
I'll second that, nobody explains the subject like he does.
I thought the oldest continually-operated business was a Buddhist temple repair company in Japan that opened somewhere the year 500 or so.
Or has that company closed?
Wikipedia says you are right!
