TOKYO -- Airbnb has joined hands with staffing company Pasona to train people in Japan to support the U.S. company's signature business of offering private homes as lodging for travelers -- a practice known as minpaku here.

Starting next year, the Pasona Group unit will offer workshops and training sessions for homemakers and others on cleaning, managing website listings, and other tasks essential to private-home rentals.
