Some things to remember
Normal rental contracts in Japan are for 2 year, fixed-term periods and depending on the apartment you may be required to pay a certain amount of rent in advance. It is possible to end a contract early but again, depending on the apartment, you may be required to pay a penalty. Key money is another charge which it is quite common in Tokyo and maybe requested by the landlord or owner company before they agree to rent out the apartment. Housing Japan is representing you when you rent an apartment in Tokyo however and our agents will always work to get you the best deal possible. Contracts can be signed on an individual or corporate basis. Contact us for more information.
Furniture and Appliances
The normal state of Japanese rental apartments is that they do not include any appliances or furniture, though there are exceptions to this, for example if the apartment is privately owned or part of a serviced condominium. For foreign residents moving to Tokyo there are a number of options if your apartment does not include furniture. If you plan to stay for a few years then purchasing your own furniture in Tokyo is a worthwhile option as the city has plenty of choice. For those who know already that they will only be staying in Tokyo for a fixed-time period then furniture rental is a further option.
