You can expect income gains from the highest-yielding asset class in real estate by managing vacation rentals.
Since 2017, World Wide Base Co., the operator of JANKEN, has managed over 500 vacation rental properties and accumulated expertise.
Our team is based in Sapporo, Furano in the east, Niseko in the west, Hakodate in the south, and Asahikawa in the north of Hokkaido, offering our expertise to make your vacation rental investment a successful one.
＋200％Vacation rental management yields on average up
to 160% more revenue than traditional real estate rentals.
Many people visit Hokkaido in winter for winter sports at the best resorts such as Niseko, Rusutsu, and Furano, which are famous for their high-quality powder snow.
Real estate properties in world-famous resort areas in Hokkaido can be used for both vacation rental and the owner's own leisure activities.
Even though the number of foreign tourists visiting Hokkaido has increased by 430% compared to 10 years ago, there are not enough accommodations for a very large number of guests.
So, the vacation rental management in Hokkaido makes it possible to maintain a stable occupancy rate while meeting the needs of visitors to Japan with as little vacancy risk as possible.
Land prices continue to rise in Niseko, and the arrival of well-known brand hotels such as Park Hyatt and Ritz-Carlton has further strengthened market credibility as a place to own, live, invest, and develop.
In addition, it is expected that active redevelopment in Hokkaido and the Hokkaido Shinkansen line extension to Sapporo will support rising property values.
Even though Hokkaido's snow quality is world-class and its potential is equal to the world's top resorts, Niseko's real estate market price is about 1/3 of that of major ski resort areas in other countries.
And Furano and Rusutsu are even less expensive. The resorts are in a growing market, so the possibility of price collapse is low, allowing you to commit to a low-risk investment.

As a ski resort where you can enjoy good quality snow in winter and a vacation spot where you can enjoy rafting in summer, Niseko is attractive all year round and attracts tourists from many countries, such as Australia.
In addition, real estate in Niseko is less expensive than in ski resort areas in other countries, and the land price increase rate is the highest in Japan. These facts make Niseko an attractive investment destination for Japanese and foreign investors.
By owning real estate in the world-famous resort area in Hokkaido, you can expect capital gains as well as income gains through the management of vacation rentals and other businesses.
Like Niseko, Furano attracts many tourists with its high-quality powder snow. In summer, tourists also visit Furano to enjoy the beautiful lavender fields.
As a result, at its peak, 153,000 foreign overnight stays per year are recorded in Furano (surprisingly, this record is higher than in Niseko).
Because of its attractiveness, land prices in the resort area and Kitanomine district have risen 34% in four years, while land and property prices in Furano are lower than those in Niseko.
In summary, Furano is an ideal area for investment in vacation rentals, where high income gains can be expected with a relatively inexpensive initial cost.
