A tremendous amount of time wasted on travel.

Did you know how to save 26 hours on a week trip to Japan?

Planning a trip is one of the biggest stresses in life

According to a survey, 42% of millennial travelers identified “travel planning” as one of their biggest stresses. ​ More than one in eight travelers surveyed spend 15 hours or more researching travel plans. 38% would be willing to pay a friend or travel agent up to USD134 to research them, and 40% would pay more for the trip overall to avoid having to plan it.

A JTB Corporation survey found that people’s No.1 hassle when preparing to travel abroad was “Packing” at 22%

The No.1 hassle after returning home was "washing and putting away clothes" at 48%

How much do you earn per hour?

The average hourly wage is USD 27 (based on the OECD average annual income of USD51,607). Do you know how much your wasted time would be worth in terms of hourly wage?

Wasted time is stressful

3 public authorities highly valued our company

Since we established our company, our business plan has been highly evaluated, and we have received subsidies from two public institutions – the Japanese government and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. In addition, Shinjuku Ward approved using shared offices.

It is extremely rare for a business to be simultaneously assessed and recognized by three major public institutions.

Comparison to similar services

Japan already has a service called Japan Hands-free Travel which transports travelers' baggage from the airport to their accommodations after they arrive in the country. This service spares travelers the hard work of carrying their baggage.​

However, this service is limited to accommodations located in a same-day delivery zone. And travelers still have to check their baggage on board, hiking up CO2 emissions.​

And it’s not a clothing rental service, so you still have to pack before departure and wash and put away your clothes when you get home. ​

Despite these disadvantages, the Japan Tourism Agency estimates that around 480,000 people use this service. We hope that many of these travelers will switch to our service to enjoy its many benefits.

Price comparison with other rental services

The average rental price for ski wear in Japan is USD33 per day, or USD1,201 if you rent 6 pieces per day for 6 days.

Typical mountaineering wears rental costs USD545 for six pieces per day for six days.

If you compare our price with other rental clothing services, you will understand the affordability of our worth, including the concierge fee and Furoshiki (wrapping clothes).
