As the city of Yokohama prepares to host major upcoming events, such as the 2019 Rugby World Cup and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the importance of developing housing services capable of meeting the needs of a diverse and sophisticated clientele is quickly increasing. Yokohama Weekly Co., Ltd., which manages 15 furnished apartment facilities in Yokohama’s central business district, stands prepared to meet the demands of this expanding marketplace.
With the increasing attractiveness of short-term lodging options like Airbnb, serviced apartment agencies must think assiduously about how to maintain a competitive edge. Yokohama Weekly CEO and Yokohama native, Mr. Masayoshi Seki, is aware of the challenges to come and is already taking action ahead of the curve. He advocates the constant renovation of guest rooms employing state-of-the-art materials in order to maintain top-notch quality well into the future.
Meticulous commitment to quality is one thing that sets Yokohama Weekly apart from the competition. Their ability to accommodate global corporations is another. Sadly, there are many real estate agencies in Japan that are unable to execute transactions efficiently because of language and cultural barriers. Yokohama Weekly diligently handles renting procedures in English and provides English instruction guides for their properties. They go the extra mile by often providing local event information and sponsoring cultural lectures, allowing tenants to make the most of their stay.
Yokohama Weekly is the oldest serviced apartment company in Kanagawa Prefecture and has been welcoming foreign clients for over 20 years. The company’s sustained excellence over this period has allowed it to build a strong connection with the city of Yokohama. They invest in numerous activities that promote commerce, culture, and the Yokohama brand. All of this has led them to become regarded as the most trusted serviced apartment agency in the city.
