Airbnb to offer one-stop support for rental hosts in Japan

Service sets out to handle everything from paperwork to furnishings

Airbnb hopes to sign up more properties by lowering the entry bar for landlords.

TOKYO -- U.S.-based Airbnb will start a comprehensive support service for hosts in Japan in an effort to ensure a sufficient number of local listings amid an upcoming regulatory change and growing competition.

A new company under Airbnb partner Evolable Asia will serve landlords who want to outsource holiday rentals on the Airbnb platform. By working with about 15 businesses, this new company will handle everything from regulatory filings and furnishings to cleaning and guest support on behalf of property owners.
