Foreigner Friendly Apartments

Apartment hunting in Tokyo or Kansai Japan can be a headache for foreigners as the vast majority of apartments do not allow foreigners. We are a family-owned business that will make the process less stressful for you. Not just by providing you with the best selection of foreigner-friendly apartments to choose from in Tokyo and Osaka but also by guiding you through the process in English from start to finish. 

 We do our best to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible. From the apartment showings, getting you accepted into the rental, signing the contract, and settling you in. All rentals will be insured for fire and water damage, cleaned, and managed by a management company. The vast majority of contracts will allow you to cancel the rental before the contract expires for a fee.

Renting Information

There are many factors that make receiving an apartment in Japan completely different from the rest of the world. From hidden fees and a higher initial cost, guarantors, and much more. We do our best to make sure our customers are well-informed on all of these factors so they can make the right decisions that work best for them.


Tokyo & Kansai

We have no hidden fees, most rental listings in Tokyo and Kansai have hidden fees involved not shown on the listing. This is expected with natives but surprising to some foreigners. This can result in being unprepared when starting to hunt for your apartment. We do our best to make sure your budget is in line with what you are looking for in a new rental.


Derek and Akiko are not just doing their service formally but also acting like your real friends. They lead and guide you in every step of the way until you get your keys! They are truly can be trusted and make sure everything is safe and smooth until the finish line. Thank you Derek and Akiko!

Took all the hassle out of finding an apartment as a foreigner in Japan. Not only that, but also found us an amazing deal that we couldn’t be happier with. Responded to our queries promptly and with great care and attention to detail and the service overall went above and beyond what we could have expected. Would highly recommend to anyone.
