An update on short-term rental apartments in Tokyo

Our short-term rentals service offers benefits for both owners and renters; an owner is making their property available at maximum value, while a tenant gains accommodation in central Tokyo with everything they need for both business and extended leisure trips.

We are now coming up to the winter season, where we tend to see an uptick in bookings by guests looking to spend the Christmas and New Year period in Japan. In addition, reservations are being made by those who are going to be working in Tokyo from 2019, especially guests connected with major events such as the Rugby World Cup and the Olympic games.

On average, occupancy in apartments managed by Housing Japan remains consistent at 85-90%, even as new homes are made available. In the last few months, there has been several cases of whole-building complexes specifically tailored for short-term renting becoming available, and quickly becoming popular with renters.

Every home that is managed by Housing Japan receives investment in both money and time in order to make it meet out quality standards before it is advertised. When we take on a new property, our team makes sure that high-quality furniture is fitted, wifi and other amenities are installed, and that everything is made safe and secure. Once a guest moves in, we provide ongoing support if and when it is required (many of our clients have been kind enough to leave us reviews and we are a super host on Airbnb).

If you are looking to rent an apartment in central Tokyo this coming holiday season or into the new year, search or enquire directly with us here.
