This service aims to assist HafH members with a wide range of issues they may face during their travels, such as advice on local restaurants or help with planning domestic or international trips. The service includes a chat function that enables HafH members to speak with a concierge who can provide assistance and recommendations.
As part of the HafH Concierge service, the company has also announced that it will begin offering assistance with booking domestic and international flights from November 1st, 2020.

This means that if a HafH member were to cause damages or injuries during their stay or the day after, they would be covered under the personal liability insurance provided by Tokio Marine & Nichido Fire Insurance. No additional procedures are necessary for HafH members to be covered by this insurance, and it is automatically included in their plan without any additional fees.

◼︎KabuK Style CEO Kenji Sunada’s comment: Comprehensive service supporting a new work style since the service launch one and a half years ago.
Since the service launch in April 2019, we have continued to develop our platform with the vision of “Working while traveling the world” and “Expanding the way we work” to provide a space where people can spend time with those they like, whenever and wherever they want.
Amidst the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the travel and tourism industry, the rapid preparation of teleworking environments and the significant shake-up of corporate and individual values have drawn attention to a new value known as “workation”. As a service that has been developed with this new value in mind, HafH’s new paid plan subscription numbers have accelerated, increasing 3.2 times year-on-year in July, 3.8 times in August, and 4.0 times in September, marking record highs for three consecutive months. The number of reservations has also accelerated, increasing 3.1 times year-on-year in July, 3.8 times in August, and 4.2 times in September, also marking record highs for three consecutive months.
Due to the expansion of the new value that we have been aiming for, and HafH’s ability to offer a variety of types of accommodations in approximately 250 cities in 25 countries, as well as the establishment of a certain degree of data verification regarding usage, we have now completed the verification phase. As a result, we are repositioning HafH as a “comprehensive service supporting a new work style” and steering towards further growth. Our mission is to “create social infrastructure that accepts diverse values as they are” and we will continue to accelerate our progress towards this goal.
◼︎As of October 29, 2020, the countries and regions where HafH’s available locations
found are Japan, Indonesia, South Korea, Cambodia, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, the Philippines, Brunei, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Myanmar, Laos, Australia, the United States, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, Greece, Georgia, Spain, Kenya, and Tanzania.
