Expat Housing in Tokyo - Renting Expat Standard Apartments

Poste date: Tuesday, May 30, 2023

Moving to Tokyo as a foreign expat takes a lot of work to find a house and get settled.

Such process involves selecting a property, area orientation, arranging a mover, all sorts of registrations, and necessary changes of all kinds. On top of that, you need to find a school and process enrollment if you have children. There are so many things to do that are time consuming.

When you stay for more than one year or stay for a long term in Japan, you may need to find a rental housing property. We highly recommend that you ask a real estate agent who has thorough knowledge of the expat life styles and vast experience in handling various properties to meet your individual needs and find your best suited house.

PLAZA HOMES helps through such processes with those who are new to Tokyo, guiding you to different areas in Tokyo, showing different types of properties, selecting appropriate properties depending on the length of your stay, explaining Japanese business customs, etc. on "Guide to Renting Property" page of our website.
