Rental parking app Akippa has tied up with short-term rental property startup Address to increase parking space listings on its platform.

Founded in Dec. last year, Address matches vacant homes and idle villas in Japan and around the world with people who want to stay.

Akippa will now showcase parking spaces for Address’s properties on its marketplace. It will also ensure parking spaces are available for the latter’s tenants.

Akippa Inc. has been operating with two offices in Tokyo and Osaka since 2009. It launched its app in 2014. The parking lot reservation app has more than 1 million members and offers parking spaces in more than 24,000 locations nationwide. It allows individuals to post and register parking spaces for free.

The company raised 2.4 billion yen ($22 million U.S.) last year through a third-party allotment of shares to seven companies including Japan Post Capital and Sumitomo Corp.

The major real estate verticals in Japan — Homes.co.jp and Athome.co.jp —— also showcase rental parking spaces.
