Arriving in Japan
- When searching for a house or room to rent, you should visit realty
dealers to find a case which meets your requirements. (Mansions are
generally classified a little higher than ordinary apartments.) It
is also a good idea to check magazines which provide such information.
- It is general practice to initially prepare to have money equivalent
to about 6 or 7 times the monthly rent.
- In addition to the realty dealers, city and prefectural housing
is also available. For details, contact the following:
Public Housing Section, Construction and Public Housing Division,
1th floor, Ichinomiya City Hall Bisai Brunch Office West Bld.
- If you are not fluent in Japanese, you should try to have a fluent Japanese
speaker accompany you when you visit realty dealers for better negotiation.
