Our Partnership with Creal Inc.
Hmlet Japan K.K. (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Kenichi Sasaki, hereinafter referred to as “Hmlet”), providing “rental housing that brings you new experiences other than just the space”, has recently formed a partnership with Creal Inc. (Taito-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Daizo Yokota, hereinafter referred to as “CREAL”), a crowdfunding company that allows retail investors to invest in real estate with as little as ￥10,000.
Through this partnership, Hmlet’s strength in leasing and community management will be leveraged with Creal’s fundraising abilities to advocate the development of new residences and new housing services in the city.
Hmlet’s strength lies in providing services and community management for foreign expats and long-term business professionals, and has established its unique positioning in the rental residence market in central Tokyo.
Hmlet aims to provide stable returns to investors via crowdfunding while further increasing profitability in the future.
About Creal Inc.
Creal Inc. introduced “CREAL”, an online real estate crowdfunding platform, and “CREAL Pro”, an asset management service for institutional investors and ultra-high net worth individuals.
Creal Inc. creates an online real estate investment market that was launched in November 2018 with the mission of “changing real estate investment and changing society”. Creal Inc. aims to provide the asset management opportunities for everyone by providing investment opportunities in various types of real estate asset classes starting from as little as ￥10,000, including large-scale real estate and ESG real estate (*1), which until now have been difficult for ordinary individual investors to reach.

Out of all the funds, 37 funds have completed their operations, all of which have redeemed their investments without loss of principal, and are paying dividends at their expected yields. (*2) We offer a wide range of asset types, including single-unit and multi-family residences, daycare facilities, schools, hotels, and offices, enabling us to provide regular investment opportunities to our investors.
