Whyis weekly rental not available?

Under Japanese law, weekly or daily renting of a property is deemed to be a hotel business rather than residential house renting, and is subject to limitations of “Hotel Business Act”. This act demands the owner to install facilities specific to inns and hotels, such as emergency exit lights. In addition, owners of inns are subject to income tax, which must be paid monthly. This is too time-consuming for the manager. Therefore, our company only provides management services for residential houses with term of a month or more.
