• We help property owners become Airbnb hosts.

    We are passionate about making Japan a better place by increasing the amount of face to face interactions between people from overseas and Japanese locals through Airbnb.

  • Do you have these problems?

    "My rental income is decreasing and I'm worried about the loans"

    "I want to generate revenue with my spare rooms / properties, but I'm not sure how"
    "I want to host and interact with people from all over the world"

    Airbnb could be the solution

  • What is Airbnb?

    Airbnb is a community marketplace where guests can book spaces from hosts, connecting people who have free space with those who are looking for a place to stay.

     

    Airbnb reimburses the hosts for covered property damage made by guests up to 80,000,000 Yen.

    There are about 3000 Airbnb listings in Japan, of which, approximately 2000 are in Tokyo. Airbnb has huge potential to grow in Japan as the Japanese government has recently passed a law encouraging people to have guests at their property without a hotel license in anticipation of the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
