Airbnb Japan Host asking for copy of Passport

Heading to Tokyo and Osaka this Fall and decided to make a booking on airbnb. It has been awhile since I used airbnb so I didnt know of this new law in Japan where airbnb hosts are required to have a copy of one's passport. A quick search seems to indicate some will only asked to see your passport while some hosts firmly require a photocopy to be emailed to them.

Can I blank out any part on my passport when submitting a copy of my passport?
