Let Us Find Your Next Apartment
Send us the answers from our questionnaire form in the link below for us to start searching for you. We will help you find what you are looking for.
If you make an appointment with us for a showing we need at least a 4 hour notice. You will ether meet one of our associates or the owner in front of the apartment building for the showing. For some of our rentals it is possible that you will be viewing it alone depending on the time. You will need to see the property's in person before you can apply for them.
After viewing an apartment if you decide to receive it then we will send you the application form. After you complete the application you will need to pay the service fee. This fee is listed in all of our listings under the total initial cost. This is to hold the apartment and also to apply for it as well. This fee is refundable if you are denied the apartment but not if you cancel.
After the application and service fee is completed you will receive a call from the guarantor company. After you get accepted by the guarantor company we will schedule a time for you to sign the contract and pay the rent and so on. The whole process should take about a week. The contract will be in Japanese but you will have the option for it to be translated.
You will need a residence card and with some rentals in Osaka or Tokyo you will need an address in back of your card. If you do need this on back of your card and don't have it we will help you.
Japanese Phone Number
You will need a Japanese phone number. If you do not have one yet but have a smart phone then it is very easy. Just go to either Skype or Google and receive a Japanese phone number through them.
Most rentals do require for you to have a Japanese citizen to be your emergency contact. It usually cannot be a foreigner. If you cannot receive one we can help you with this.
Ability To Pay Rent
Your salary should be three times higher than the rent. If you do not have a salary then you should have ether enough in your savings, have a contract for a new job or receive a guarantor.
