Vacation Rentals

賃別荘 "Vacation rentals" is fast gaining popularity in the domestic room reservation market. It was first introduced few years back as an alternative for ski resorts in Hokkaido. It helped to ease a little in the shortage of ski accommodations and also to offer a wider range of prices. It is ideal for large families and groups looking out for a spacious living space or quite surrounding away from large crowd.

It no longer portray as a temporary solution to ease the shortage of accommodations during the ski season, it is now highly sought for in summer as well as other traveling peak seasons. And the location of these villas are slowly moving closer to big cities in Honshu too. Perhaps in a few more years to come, it will be one of your main choices of accommodation in Japan. The 'big three' have already started offering vacation rental accommodations as one of their regular travel products. Other operators are also keen to tap into this new market as well.
