“A Japanese monk is suing his temple, claiming he was forced to work non-stop catering to visiting tourists and that the heavy workload gave him depression, his lawyer said on Thursday. The monk in his forties is seeking 8.6 million yen ($78,000) from his temple on Mount Koya, a World Heritage Site also known as Koyasan that is regarded as one of the most sacred Buddhist sites in Japan. ” https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/05/17/depressed-monk-sues-one-japans-sacred-buddhist-temples-non-stop/

If the “user” is the tourist, what responsibility does a tourist have to ensure that places he /she is visiting follow ethical business practices?
